Have you ever gotten those flavored hot cocoa mixes around the holidays? One of my very favorites is the Warm Oatmeal Cookie Hot Cocoa from Land O’ Lakes. Around the holidays, I like to pick those up at Sam’s Club and my kids especially like all the different flavors. But I’m not so keen on all the artificial flavors and ingredients that come in those little packages. So I’ve been trying to duplicate some of our favorite flavors by making them from scratch.
When I first decided to develop my own copy cat version of the Warm Oatmeal Cookie Hot Cocoa it took several tries. Getting the right combinations of cinnamon and cloves just right took some experimenting. But the result is that they add a nice flavor to the hot cocoa that makes it a nice twist on traditional hot cocoa. This recipe two cups at a time but you could easily double or triple it when you are making hot cocoa for a crowd. I usually like to enjoy my Warm Oatmeal Cookie Hot Cocoa in the afternoons when I’m looking for a little something sweet to warm me up on a chilly day.
