After an afternoon outside in the cold, there's nothing better than coming in and enjoying a hot beverage as a family.
We've got eight tasty recipes that everyone will enjoy — all that's missing is the crackling sound of the fireplace and a big, comfy blanket.
This is an oldie, but a goodie. It's withstood the test of time and is proven to instantly warm up even the chilliest of toes. And, if it's topped off with mini marshmallows and/or whipped cream, it's also impossible to turn down.

This is better than coffee and has that extra kick of caffeine that hot chocolate sometimes lacks. The kiddos might even like it (but decaf, of course). They may also enjoy watching the mixture expand in the blender.

You don't have to be a Harry Potter fan to go nuts for this hot drink. For those who find hot chocolate a little too chocolatey (we know, it's hard to believe) or who simply prefer butterscotch, this might just be the perfect way to watch a snowstorm from the window.

The combination of apple cider and cranberries is sure to bring warmth and festive cheer to a winter party (or just a cold day). The hint of citrus and spices adds a special touch and a flavour that everyone will enjoy.

This classic winter drink has a syrupy-sweet vanilla twist. You can never have too much maple. Try it with some whipped cream and, that's right, more maple syrup as a topping.

This is the perfect gift for your favourite babysitter, stressed-out piano teacher, or even for the rest of your family. Fill an empty peanut butter jar, coffee can, or glass bottle with this wonderful concoction, stick on a custom-designed (by-you-know-who) label, and tie the whole thing up with some shiny ribbons. And if you want to keep it all to yourself, we won't judge.
