3. S’ mores

Without a doubt, S’mores are a staple for fall and winter. So to make s’mores in your dorm room all you need to do is place a piece of chocolate in the middle of a graham cracker, then add a large marshmallow. Next, microwave on high for 15 seconds then top with another graham cracker. Isn’t that super easy? 

4. Pumpkin Spice Latte

How can we not have the infamous pumpkin latte during fall? Instead of spending dollars on some fancy latte make a delicious one for yourself in your dorm room! All you need is 3/4 Cup Almond Milk, 1/2 Cup Black Coffee, 1 Tbs Pumpkin Puree canned or homemade, 1/4 Tsp Vanilla Extract, 1/8 Tsp Cinnamon, 1/8 Tsp Nutmeg, Pinch Allspice, and 2 Tbs Maple Syrup. In a blender, combine all ingredients, and blend on high until smooth and creamy. This latte can either be served hot or cold. For cold, just pour in a glass over ice and serve. For hot, either heat up in the microwave or heat up in a saucepot on the stove until just simmering (which is what I did). Sprinkle with cinnamon and enjoy!
