Spiced Hot Chocolate 1 pt

Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium high heat stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in milk and vanilla and cook 4 minutes or until thoroughly heated stirring frequently. 3 servings.

Of coarse my all time favorite snack recipe is some veggies and a little light ranch dressing to dip them in.. = 2 pts.

Both of those sound really wonderful! I noticed you included the point value. Do you do Weight Watchers? I've lost weight doing that before!
