Mint Mocha Coffee

This morning I got a little creative.  I don’t have pictures, and really no measurements because I eyeballed everything.  I had some Ghirardeli milk chocolate chips and half and half left over from the Red Velvet Trifle that I made so I wanted to use them up.  

I put a pot on low-med heat and put in about 1/2 cup of half and half.  You could use milk or heavy cream whatever you have in your fridge.  I added about a handful or two of the chocolate chips.  I didn’t want the mixture to be too thick or chocolatey so I went easy on it.  You could add as much as you wanted.  If you use milk you might want to add more to thicken up the milk a bit.  If you don’t have chocolate chips you could use Hershey’s Chocolate syrup.  

After the chips were melted I added in a few drops of Peppermint extract.  It smelled SO good!  While this was going on I brewed about 20 oz of coffee in the Keurig.  Currently we have a really strong French Roast so it’s almost like espresso.  

That’s it!  Easy right?  Tasted better than the coffee shop!  The flavor was a lot like peppermint bark which I am currently obsessed with.  It was cold and snowing this morning so this was the perfect warm drink to snuggle up to.  Enjoy!
