Can you believe I have been appearing on Twin Cities Live for a year now? Craziness, I tell you!
I reprised my role as a “lifestyle expert” today as I mixed up some delicious chocolatey goodness. And for you non-chocolate lovers, a flavorful vanilla drink. And if you can’t be pleased with “hot” or vanilla, I made a super amazing Pretzel and Salted Caramel Frozen Hot Chocolate. YES. (There happens to be a secret announcement in this appearance, so watch it or be out of the loop!)

4 cups of milk
1 cinnamon stick
1 1/2 tbsp sugar (add another 1 1/2 tbsp of sugar if you like sweeter milk)
1 tbsp vanilla, or 1 inch of vanilla bean, sliced and scraped
Add all ingredients to a crock pot. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Set crock pot to “low” and heat for 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Serve in mugs and garnish with whipped cream and ground cinnamon.
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and garnish with whipped cream, crushed pretzels, salted caramel sauce and serve immediately.
