MAKE YOUR OWN PEPPERMINT MOCHA CREAMER!

   Here's another great treat from www.whatmegansmaking.com.  With all of the people that drink coffee, this would make a great homemade gift along with some of their favorite coffees and maybe even a nice mug to go with it and some biscotti to dunk with the coffee.  I'll be coming out with some of my favorite biscotti recipes real soon.  I always make alot during this time of the year.  People just can get enough of it!

I warned you when I made homemade pumpkin spice creamer that I would be trying a peppermint version during the Christmas season. I only lasted a few days after Thanksgiving before I gave in to the demand of Christmas flavored treats. And this homemade peppermint mocha creamer is the perfect way to add some Christmas spirit to your morning coffee. Or hot chocolate for that matter – this would be equally delicious in both.   As with the pumpkin spice version, this is incredibly easy to make and has been a big hit around here. I lightened mine up by using skim milk in place of the whole milk, so I don’t even feel too guilty having a little bit every morning.  Now that I’m on a homemade creamer kick, what other flavors should I try??

Homemade Peppermint Mocha Creamer


ingredients:

1 cup whole milk (*I used skim with good results)
1 cup heavy cream
4 tablespoons maple syrup
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon peppermint extract

directions:

In a medium sized saucepan over medium heat, whisk together milk, cream, maple syrup, and cocoa powder. When mixture begins to bubble around the edges of the pan, remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the peppermint extract. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a glass bottle and store in the refrigerator.
