    • I thought it would be a great idea to make this in the crock pot. It takes seconds to put in the crock pot, and it makes the whole room smell delicious.
    • You could easily take this to a party, or just have it on a cold, winter’s day!
    • If you do not want  to make this in the crock pot, but a single serving, just divide the recipe by 5, layer the ingredients the same way, heat it up in the microwave, and top with caramel syrup!
    • For the topping, I do recommend using something like Hershey’s Caramel Syrup.
    • Also, some of the cinnamon will likely come to the top of the crock-pot; this is okay! Just give it a good stir before serving.

Yields:  8 Mug with Attitude servings
