I have to admit to ya’ll that I am a Starbuck’s girl. Oh mamma, give me a grande Java Chip anyday! Now that it is the Christmas season they have brought another one that just calls to me.
The Peppermint Mocha Latte.
Oh sweet heaven in a cup!
The problem with this whole Starbucks thing is that I can’t go forking over a fiver everytime I want some chocolate-y coffee. Sigh.
BUT, I figured out a little rendition of the Peppermint Mocha Latte of my own.
I combined a hot cup of fake coffee, you know the crystalized stuff, and a cup of hot chocolate. It was delish! I have made several of them over the past few days, and I am loving it! No trip into town. Not to mention it is cheap and easy to make.
Today I found a way to add that little something to my new found drink. Peppermint food flavoring! I have cinnamon, peppermint, vanilla and almond. The peppermint was fab, and now I am working on trying the others.
Being cheap frugal and a nut for chocolate helped me to discover my very own Starbucks knockoff, and that works for me!
