Fall Is Coming! Fall Is Coming!

Fall is coming and I can't wait to enjoy what it brings. The beautiful colors that only nature can bring. The crisp evenings, sipping on hot chocolates or other warm drinks that comes to mind.
I thought I would share with you, one of my favorite drinks. It completely gives a whole new look for hot chocolates or even warm flavored milk drinks. It is my Hot Candy Corn milk. This recipe only calls for one drink, so if you're having company, you'll need to do the math.

Hot Candy Corn Milk

1/2 c. Heavy cream
1 1/2 c. Milk
1/2 c. White chocolate chips
1/2 c. Candy corn
Peel of one orange
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
Pinch of salt
Whipped cream for topping

With a sharp knife or peeler, remove just the orange part of the rind, being careful not to get any of the white pith. For the pith will cause your drink to taste bitter.
Combine all ingredients with the exception of the whipped cream, in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir frequently as the white chocolate and candy corn melt into the milk. Cook until the candies are fully incorporated and the mixture is smooth and creamy. Strain out the orange peels before serving.
To make this eye appealing, add a dollop of the whipped cream and put a couple of pieces of candy corn on top. Enjoy!
