thirsty thursday: andes mint hotChata

HAPPY THIRSTY THURSDAY!!! i hope you came thirsty!!! this week i have two drinks in one post…and they’re both divine.  AND they’re both made in a CROCK POT.  this might be my favorite drink post yet!!two amazing drinks made with andes mints, rumchata, and a CROCK POT. andes mint hotChata!! amazingI saw this idea on pinterest…but it didn’t link to any actual blog post.  I searched and searched and couldn’t find a source.  so if you’re out there, and came up with this idea, let me know!! I’d love to credit you.  the pinterest picture showed a crock pot, andes mints, rumchata, whipping cream, condensed milk, and milk.  I wanted to simplify that a bit, so I came up with this:

two amazing drinks made with andes mints, rumchata, and a CROCK POT. andes mint hotChata!! amazingthe only ingredients in these two delightful holiday cocktails are baking chips, rumchata, and half & half. I tried it with the condensed milk, and in my opinion it made it too sweet.  it is already quite sweet with the baking chips…just perfect!! you could also use whole andes mints if you can’t find the baking chips…just chop them up before putting them in the crock pot!

andes mint hotChata. BEST DRINK EVER. made in a CROCK POT with rumchata and andes mints. YES!

first up, the andes mint hotchata.  YUM.  this is my favorite of the two (because I love chocolate, surprise surprise).  I love the drink we made last year, the tipsy nutella hot cocoa, but this gives it a run for its money.  SO easy and SO good.  I love mint and chocolate…seriously good!

(they don’t look as cute as the blog I got them from, but they sure did taste good!) baby steps…

if you haven’t tried rumchata before…stop what you’re doing and buy some right now!! (SO yum) unless you’re currently at work, under 21, or pregnant :).  I had never tried it before and I have to say, its quite tasty.  hints of cinnamon and nutmeg…so good! perfect compliment for traditional hot chocolate.

I’m bringing this with me to a holiday party next weekend.  get ready matt and company!

and finally, the peppermint hotChata.  this one is also great, and so festive for Christmas.  I love the pink color!  I used andes mint peppermint crunch baking chips (the same ones I used in my Christmas bark recipe)  they are SO good.  you could also probably use candy cane kisses or the candy cane Hershey’s bars.

all the preparations are the same, the only difference is the type of baking chips used.

These two drinks look delicious and warm. We will be trying them this month. I only wish Scout and Dill were going to be with able to share them with us:-) I'm sure Harper will try, though.
    becky gall hardin
    Ha mom you replied as me! I was so confused
      becky gall hardin
      I'm a goose. I don't know if I'm you or me:-) Your mother.

        Ok, whaat is going on? hahahaha
          becky gall hardin
          you must have been logged in to wordpress when you commented...so it automatically had my information. I could not figure out why it said that! ha

Such a pretty post, Becky... and your Dill & Scout are hoot! (I didn't think there was a liquor out there I wasn't familiar with but Rum Chata is now on my shopping list!)
    becky gall hardin
    I'm excited for you to try it! its dangerously good. I can't believe I hadn't heard of it before either! mom told me 'Antonio bandaras is a big fan'. lol
Ann Mitchell
thinking of trying for our family Christmas. How long does it have to be in crock pot. you say stir every 20 min, but don't say the amount of time. is it an hour or 2 or more.
    becky gall hardin
    It doesn't take very long to melt...probably an hour. Just needs to be in there long enough where it as hot as you want it. Thanks for stopping by! Let me know if you like it!!
Michelle
Crap! I didn't see where I needed "half & half"...what can I substitute???
    becky gall hardin
    you could use equal parts heavy cream and regular milk...or you could use just milk. it would still taste good but wouldn't be as creamy. hope that helps!! thanks for stopping by!

I am wondering if it is a better idea to add the RumChata after the other has melted and heated .. only wondering since alcohol evaporates when heated .... when I make apple pie and Kahlua I add the alcohol at the end .. can not wait to try your recipes!!!
    Becky Hardin
    Not a bad idea! I might try it that way next time!!
    David
    Just a side note, alcohol evaporates at an extremely slow pace and never really evaporates full out.. There is a chart that shows the method of cooking and how much of the alcohol you really lose. But having it in a crock pot on a low heat for 2 hours or so isn't going to be hot enough or long enough for you to lose much alcohol. Just so you don't have to worry too much about it!
      Becky Hardin
      Thank you David, I wasn't sure. I appreciate the knowledge A LOT! And I'm glad it doesn't all cook out. Bonus! :)
        David
        No problem! I actually have a edited crock pot of this going right now at work for me Work Christmas Party.. I had to tweak it QUITE a bit since we can't have Rumchata at work.. Sad I know.. I have no idea how its going to turn out..
          Becky Hardin
          Oh I'm excited! Hope you love it!
          David
          It was good! For anybody having a work gathering it's a good substitute.. I am going to put it on my blog when I have it set up. I did 9 Cups Skim Milk 2 bags of Ande's Cooking chips 2 cups of Heavy Whipping Cream a couple good shakes of cinnamon, or you could just leave a few cinnamon sticks in it while it cooks. Sorry to post so many times on your blog today! David - http://thebizfeed.com/
          Becky Hardin
          Happy you did!! This substitute recipe looks perfect!!

Can you use the actual Andes mints instead of the baking chips?
