Spiked Almond Joy Hot Cocoa

PER SERVING (entire drink): 124 calories, 0g fat, 160mg sodium, 12g carbs, 1g fiber, 10g sugars, 2g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*

We felt it was time for our delicious Mounds Bar Martini to have a hot new friend, so we mixed up this tasty coconut cocoa to help fight those dropping temperatures. Hope you like our new "mug-tail".

Ingredients:

1 1/2 oz. (3 tbsp.) coconut rum
1 packet Swiss Miss Sensible Sweets Diet Hot Cocoa Mix
1 drop almond extract
Optional: Fat Free Reddi-wip

Directions:
In your favorite mug, prepare cocoa with 3/4 cup hot water according to package instructions. Add the rum and almond extract. (Remember, just one DROP of extract!) Stir and, if you like, top with a generous squirt of Reddi-wip. Enjoy, preferably wrapped in a blanket by a roaring fire.

This drink is chilly and white... just like snow (but it tastes much better). Weeeeeee!

1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda)

Place powdered creamer and sweetener in a glass. Add 1/4 cup warm water and stir to dissolve.

Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice cubes. Add creamer mixture, vodka, and peppermint extract. Cover and shake well, until mixture is cold.
