It's hard to imagine the wintery season without thinking of hot cocoa. This hot cocoa peppermint mocha latte really makes a good case for me rolling out of bed in brisk weathered mornings. This recipe is more old-fashioned with actual cacao powder and brown sugar, but you can use instant hot chocolate packets too.
- 1/3 cup of water
- 3 tbsp of cacao powder
- 1 tsp of brown sugar
- 1/2 cup of coffee
- 4 Peppermint candy canes
- Whipped Cream
- In a pan add 3 peppermint candy canes and 3 tbsp of water, heat and stir until dissolved. Add mixture to a mug.
- In another pan, add cacao powder, brown sugar, and remaining water. Bring to a boil and stir mixture until all is dissolved.
- Add cacao mix to the mug and then add hot coffee (we recommend our Be Merry Blend).
- Top off with whipped cream and decorate with candy cane. Enjoy!
