Cozy and cuddle up by the fire with these delicious Crockpot Gingerbread Lattes. Simple to make at home and no need to run to the local coffee shop!
4 cups milk (2% or lower)
1/2 cup coconut or brown sugar
2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 cup strong black coffee
whipped cream for topping
gingerbread cookie for garnish
optional: splash of bourbon or rum
t’s best to use a 4 quart crock pot, you could use as small as a 2 quart.
Pour milk into your crock pot, and whisk in the dried spices. Do not add the coffee. Cover and cook on low for 3 hours, or high for 1-2.
Watch the milk carefully so it does not come to a boil (it can curdle & boil over) if you do. It should be very hot, but not bubbling. Reduce heat if it boils.
Divide the coffee into coffee mugs. Garnish with whipped cream, a sprinkle of cinnamon & a gingerbread cookie.
Add a splash of bourbon or rum to lattes before you add the whipped cream, if desired.
