I’m excited to be a part of “Crockuary” – a full month that Tammilee has dedicated to recipes made in the slow cooker. It’s amazing how dependent we become on this appliance during the winter months specially, although throughout the year it’s a time saver for busy weeks. When brainstorming what to make in my slow cooker, I decided on a hot drink: it’s trendy to make small batches of drinks in slow cookers, it’s super simple, and the results are fabulous!

And sure, everyone will love a cinnamon-spiced hot chocolate as you welcome them into your home, but how about serving up mugs of this Hot Dulce de Leche Chai? It’s sweet, decadent, and takes it less than 5 minutes to throw together!…

Crock Pot Hot Chocolate

How many cups of hot chocolate have you made in the past week since the weather turned nasty?

I am on a hot chocolate kick. I figure if it is going to be super cold out that means I must warm up with hot chocolate. I just seems like the thing you have to do.

I decided to make Crock Pot Hot Chocolate because well….

-I am tired of making it a cup at a time

-I wanted something cheaper than individual packets

-I wanted to see if it would work

-oh and I love a lot of hot chocolate

All of these seem like perfectly great reasons to make a big ole crock pot of hot chocolate. So I did…

and it was FANTASTIC!

Copy Cat Sonic Peanut Butter Shake

I love a rich and creamy milkshake! Sonic makes amazing milkshakes in so many flavors it is amazing. I thought it would be fun to put together a Copy Cat Sonic Peanut Butter Shake.  My dear Husband John is a huge peanut butter fan. I am pretty sure he eats a scoop of it every day. We do not get by the Sonic in Spokane that often so I thought making a Copy Cat Sonic Peanut Butter Shake would be the best way to mix John’s love of peanut butter and my love of Sonic Shakes.

This Copy Cat Sonic Peanut Butter Shake is so easy to make! All you need is a few simple ingredients, a blender and a few seconds and you have a creamy peanut butter shake ready to go! If you prefer coconut check out our recipe for Copy Cat Sonic Coconut Cream Pie Shakes.

Copy Cat Dunkin Donuts Coffee Coolatta

My lovely Husband loves coffee! I mean seriously LOVES coffee! He stocks up on his favorite coffee each year when it goes on sale so he knows he has more than enough to get through the year. When summer hits he still drinks his coffee but always ends up pouring out a big portion of it since it is just to hot for hot coffee. I thought it would be fun to play with some different blended coffee drinks. This Copy Cat Dunkin Donuts Coffee Coolatta is a great combination of coffee, ice, and smooth flavor.

When I made this drink I had to quickly run out and grab a photo before John got his hands on it. It was 90+ degrees outside and he had just finished mowing the lawn. He took one look at the drink and said, “I hope you have photos of this because it is going to disappear quickly!” When he was done with it he asked if there was any more left in the house. He said it was nice and cold and tasted amazing.

Copy Cat Sonic Coconut Cream Pie Shake

I love making copy cat recipes at home. It is so much fun making our favorite restaurant treats in the comfort of our house. This Copy Cat Sonic Drive In Coconut Cream Pie Shake is so good!!!

John came home from lunch and I had just finished making this Copy Cat Sonic Drive In Coconut Cream Pie Shake.  He was so happy to “taste test” the shake for me.  I had to wrestle it away from him so I could snap a quick picture. When I came back in he was eating the extras right out of the blender. He had quite the smile on his face as he told me how much he enjoyed it knowing he was caught sneaking it from the blender.

This recipe is super easy to make and only takes a few minutes to blend up and you can sit back and enjoy a Copy Cat Sonic Drive In Coconut Cream Pie Shake

Copy Cat McDonalds Sweet Tea

I was not a tea drinker until I got married. I grew up in a soda house and pretty much lived on diet soda up until getting married. John grew up in the South and thought it was crazy that I did not drink tea. Well many years later I am now a tea drinker and have given up soda. One of my favorite treats when we are out and about is tea. I thought it would be fun to make this Copy Cat McDonalds Sweet Tea and see how it turned out.

This is such a cheap recipe to make! Oh my goodness a couple of tea bags, water and sugar and you have a 2 quart jug of sweet tea ready to go!
