Peppermint mochas are my favorite drink during this time of year and I'm always craving s'mores. I put the two together and this scrumptious drink was born! It's single-serve so no need to share!
For the first time in forever we're done Christmas shopping extra early! Normally I'm scrambling a few days before Christmas to get everything done but we started shopping extra early this year so - boo-yah! The only thing left to do is wrap, wrap, wraaaap until my fingers fall off. I just love this time of year! All of the beautiful decorations and lights brighten my mood instantly and my son just loves looking out the car windows while we drive around at night to see them ooh-ing and ahh-ing at them. The other thing I love about December is that it's totally acceptable to have peppermint everything. Peppermint desserts, peppermint coffee - I'm all about peppermint everything! One of my favorite drinks to get around this time of year is a Peppermint Mocha. Chocolate + coffee + peppermint is pretty much the best combo ever.
These S'mores Peppermint Mochas are the perfect balance of everything for me. The perfect amount of coffee to chocolate to peppermint ratio. I don't like my coffee too strong so these are just perfect. These drinks are like the grown up version of my favorite drink peppermint hot chocolate since coffee is added. I think mint is a flavor that you either love or you hate. I am a mint LOVEEEr and I hope you are too!
You get the minty-ness in these drinks thanks to the addition of International Delight® Peppermint Mocha coffee creamer, one of my favorites! You can find it in the refrigerated section at Target along with other festive coffee creamer flavors! I added some marshmallow creme into the mix because it really gives it that s'mores feel that I'm *always* craving year round.
These s'mores peppermint mochas are the perfect cozy drink to sip on curled up by the fire!
