I've been making my own 'crock pot yogurt' for several months now and thought I'd pass on some flavoring ideas that have worked well for me.

My favorite is to add 1 package of Land O'Lakes Mocha flavored hot cocoa to 1 qt. of plain yogurt. The Chocolate Raspberry & Hazelnut flavors work well too.

Another thing I've been making is flavored sugars:

1 t. extract or flavor per 1 C white sugar
(I like to add food coloring too)

(Since yogurt is always a bit tart, lemon and orange flavors are particularly well suited!)

Then it's a simple matter to use flavored sugar, instead of plain sugar, in the recipe.

(If you're using plain store-bought yogurt, 1 teaspoon of any extract, per quart of yogurt, works well.)

You can always use the flavored sugars in other recipes too. If you're like me, and just love maple flavor--it's really simple to make maple flavored sugar cookies, etc.!
