    We made it home safely from our long weekend, and I will post details and pictures later this evening. 

    Until then…

    My husband has been begging me for two weeks to share my recipe for “Galactic Cowgirl Coffee,” so share it I shall.  There really is no coffee in the drink, and name was given by a college friend of mine (she thought it was catchy) to a homemade hot cocoa drink with a peppermint stick added as a holiday treat.  So I shall share my recipe for my mom’s homemade hot cocoa mix with peppermint (optional), a.k.a. Galactic Cowgirl Coffee.

    Hot Cocoa Mix

    • 8 qt. box of powdered milk
    • 7 oz. dry cream
    • 1 lb. Nestle Quick
    • 1/2 lb. powdered sugar (I use less)
    • cinnamon (to taste)
    • marshmallows

    Use 3-4 tbsp of mix per mug of hot water.

    For an added treat or special holiday drink, add a peppermint stick or small candy cane to the hot cocoa.
