A Hottie toddy with peanut twist
Now that cooler nights are getting closer, it’s time for something in a mug. Peanut Hottie is a new ground-peanut drink mix you can stir into hot water (or warm milk). Even better: Add a shot of something adult, like a little raspberry liqueur. It comes in regular and chocolate flavors, and a 9.15-ounce jar is $4.78 at Walmart.
