Warm up with a cup of Chai!

I got this recipe off of the internet a few years ago, I'm sorry I don't know who where to give credit to for it. It is a favorite in our house and I wanted to share. I use store brand ingredients unless the others are on sale. The spices can get spendy but if you watch the sales (specially this time of year) it's not so bad. The recipe below is good mixed in water or skim milk. We like it both ways, it's milder and creamier tasting with milk.

This recipe also makes a great treat/gift addition during the holidays. Package up in baggies with a cute computer crafted or rubber stamped topper, put it in jars with a cute tag or label attached!

If you try it, let me know what you think!
