You are going to absolutely love these non-alcoholic Christmas drink recipes! I can recall coming inside from a long day of playing in the snow and taking in the dreamy scent of chocolate and candy canes coming from the kitchen. Fresh hot cocoa was resting on the counter alongside a pile of candy canes as replacements for stirring sticks, and a pillow-like plate of large, fluffy marshmallows was stacked high enough to make our mouths water. My sister and I ran into the kitchen so quickly, we forgot to take our mud and snow covered shoes off (my mom wasn’t too happy about that). But it didn’t matter, for we were about to taste the holidays! No one should miss out on a memory like that one, so I’ve rounded up 8 of the best holiday drink recipes (hot and cold) for you and your children to try!
