Ready for the most delicious holiday drink recipe of the year!?
ok, here it is y'all!
It just happens to be my most favorite drink at Starbucks, but at $5 a pop, its just not worth it all the time.
So... I did some experimenting & came up with this close second...
what you need:
a handfull of peppermints
hot chocolate mix
espresso/strongly brewed coffee
First, get a cup and a half of milk
add 4-5 peppermints and start heating on the stove.
while the peppermints are melting & the milk is heating up, brew your strong coffee or espresso. (you don't need a ton!)
When your milk is ready to go, it will be a lovely shade of light pink!
add your milk to the hot chocolate mix.
and then top your hot chocolate off with your espresso/strongly brewed coffee. (probably 1-2 shots of espresso-- i usually just eyeball it!)
top your concoction with whipped cream & you're good to go!
