Peppermint Mocha Hot Chocolate

Peppermint Mocha Hot Chocolate: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

This drink is a combination between a hot chocolate and a mocha. It has a very subtle coffee flavor, with great hot chocolate flavor accented by crushed peppermint candy canes. A great way to use up those holiday candy canes that never seem to get eaten.

Peppermint Mocha Hot Chocolate
Ingredients:
1/2 cup milk, divided
1/2 cup half and half
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 tablespoons crushed candy canes, plus extra for garnish
1/2 cup strong brewed coffee
whipped cream

Directions:
In a small saucepan whisk together 2 tablespoons milk, cocoa powder and 2 tablespoons crushed candy cane. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the candy canes have melted and everything is well combined. Stir in the rest of the milk and all of the half and half and heat until hot. Stir in the coffee and pour into 1 large mug. Top with whipped cream and extra candy cane pieces.

Enjoy!!!
