I was searching for ideas to make for Christmas and came across this recipe, so I made me a cup to test out. I found that is a nice mix to have when you want a hot drink on a cold rainy or snowy day. I added some sugar to my cup(personal preference) its a bit to strong for me with using 2Tbs for 1 hot cup of water,next cup I will try using 1Tbs.of mix to 1 cup and see if I need sugar. Great gift idea too! I like the flavor!The red hot cinnamon candies add a nice touch to the mix. Thanks for sharing your recipe grandma2969!
