Much like the rest of the country, I did a little Christmas shopping this past weekend.  Harrison and I went out for a little while to take advantage of the sales for some things we needed.  I will admit that while I got some deals on some clothes and shoes, I’m not a big fan of Black Friday.  I wasn’t willing to fight the crowds or staying up all night long hunting for the best bargains – no that’s really not my cup of tea.  I actually prefer sleeping in, doing most of my holiday shopping on-line, and enjoying this deliciously easy Peppermint Mocha in my slippers at home.

As many of you know, I love coffee.  I enjoy stopping off at my local coffee shop to try one of their seasonal classics, but I’m not always in love with their prices.  Upwards of $4 for a small Peppermint Mocha, is always a bit shocking to the wallet, especially if you’re enjoying them multiple times a week.  I decided a while ago that because I love this fun, Christmas classic, I needed to learn to make it at home.  Well, guess what?  It’s super-easy!!

The traditional mocha is made with espresso, however, I didn’t have espresso at home, so I utilized a traditional dark roast brewed coffee.  To that I added chocolate milk that I heated in the microwave, along with peppermint syrup.  You can find peppermint syrup in the coffee section at the grocery store.  I topped it with some whipped topping and sprinkled with some crushed peppermint candies.  Doesn’t it look pretty?!

This is such a fun drink to enjoy while you’re watching your favorite Christmas movies, great to take with you in the car while shopping (so you don’t have to spend $$$ at the coffee shop), and wonderful for enjoying with holiday cookies and candies!  Better yet, enjoy one of these delicious Peppermint Mocha’s in your pajamas while you do your Christmas shopping on line!
