Do you celebrate Three Kings Day on January 6th? We don't actually celebrate it, but we do use it as an excuse to eat as much Pan de Rosca as we can. While I usually enjoy this once a year treat with hot cocoa, this year I have a new drink to accompany it.
LECHE CON VAINILLA
I am a big fan or warm drinks and you can usually find me with some sort of hot cocoa, hot tea or coffee in my hand, especially during the cold winter nights. It's always fun finding new recipes for hot drinks and tonight for the first time ever, I made Milk With Vanilla and Cinnamon. What a yummy sounding drink right? Well it made the entire house smell like a vanilla and cinnamon candle and once I finished making it and sat down to enjoy it, I loved the delicious sweetness of it. I usually have a glass of warm milk when I can't sleep and I had never thought to add vanilla to it. I have been missing out on a really wonderful treat all this time!
You will love just how easy this is to make. The directions below are for the stove top, but you can also microwave it to make it even easier. If you love warm milk and latte type drinks, you will love this!
LECHE CON VAINILLA

This is one of those recipes that you had never though of making, but once you try it, you will reach for it over and over again. It's just such a sweet treat and so simple to make.
