The Mac & Cheese Cornbread Combo

Kraft, Velvetta, Annie’s, oh my! No matter what the brand is, macaroni is one of the most beloved and iconic side dishes on the planet earth. While you may think macaroni and cornbread don’t make the best mix, you’ll soon realize you were sadly mistaken after you take that first bite.

Arguably, the most common way of combining the two is by using the cornbread as a topping or crust. However, this certainly isn’t the only method. From adding extra ingredients like bacon or jalapenos to making mini macaroni and cheese cornbread muffins, the possibilities are endless.

In any case and no matter how you decide to customize, it’s safe to say that these two items have more in common besides sharing the same color.

Stovetop Cinnamon Hot Chocolate

The holiday season usually signifies cold weather. Besides wearing jackets and blasting your heater to stay warm, there’s nothing better than a steaming hot cup of cocoa on a freezing cold winter morning.

If you’re in the mood for something different (and you’re looking to add a little spice to your beverage), some cinnamon might just be what you’re looking for.

This recipe comes to us by way of  Jelly Toast. Much like a lot of things on this list, this idea doesn’t require a lot of ingredients or complex directions. To make it, all you need is milk, sugar, some cocoa powder, marshmallows, and cinnamon.
