I am participating in a project over at My 3 Boybarians called Project52 (P52) which stands for “1 photo each week for a year.” There is an assigned theme each week and I try to take the best photo I can related to that theme. Here is my attempt this week!
This week’s theme was: Drink up.
Here’s my shot of my favorite morning beverage – Peppermint Mocha.
So how rude would it be if I left you with that yummy picture and didn’t share how to make it.
Here are my ingredients…
- My favorite Starbucks coffee
- Coffee-mate Peppermint Mocha creamer
- Hershey’s chocolate syrup
- whipped cream (by the way, just splurge and buy the brand name stuff – this one is messy and not near as good.)
Make some strong coffee, or better yet a shot of two of espresso. I was going for a LARGE drink today so I made strong coffee. Fill the cup about 2/3rds full.
Fill the rest of the cup with creamer. I like a little coffee with my cream.
Then top with whipped cream, drizzle with chocolate syrup…and enjoy! (I also topped mine that day with some crushed up leftover candy cane and a cute little heart sprinkle for Valentine’s.)
Much cheaper than Starbucks and can easily be made at home.
So. . . DRINK UP!
Do you have a favorite coffee drink?
Would love some more ideas or recipes!
