Peppermint Mocha Coffee

Note: When I met Dr. Wifey at Borders today, I ordered a Peppermint Mocha coffee. It was very yummy. Maybe it was the company that made it so great, but I thought I would look for a recipe. I found several and took bits and pieces until I found one that I thought I could work with. I knew that my Little Guy would love this! BUT, if you don't want to go to this much trouble, you can always just buy the Coffee Mate Peppermint Mocha creamer and put a little in your coffee. I assure you it isn't as good, but it is a nice little treat during the holidays!

Peppermint Mocha Coffee

6 cups freshly brewed coffee
4 ounces semisweet baking chocolate (4, 1 ounce squares)
1 1/2 cups milk (already heated)
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
8 peppermint stick candy

Pour coffee into large saucepan. Add chocolate; cook on low heat 5 minute or until chocolate is melted, stirring occasionally. Add milk and extract; stir until well blended.
Garnish each serving with a peppermint stick.

I'm SO jealous of both the coffee and the company! Hope you guys had fun!

My favorite Christmas-time coffee is at Starbuck's...White Chocolate Peppermint Mocha. The coffee-mate creamer just isn't as good. I may have to try YOUR recipe though.
