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.
