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!
