Day 5: Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Day 5: Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Here is a recap so far of the 12 Days of My Mug and Me:
Day 1: Favorite Coffee Shop Drink
Day 2: Anyone Care for a Cuppa Tea?
Day 3: Eggnog Shake and a Smile
Day 4: Unleaded Cocktails Anyone?

The holiday season seems to be in full swing with newly fallen snow in Minnesota and the temperatures falling, winter is here.

Today’s Travel Mug use involves chocolate, peppermint, and whip cream. Now that is a heavenly combination.  After 10 am I typically need to turn off the caffeine consumption and switch to something else. We have talked about Peppermint Tea already so let’s talk about one of my other favorites, it involves Peppermint but with a chocolate twist.

What’s in the Mug?
Velvety hot chocolate, with a shot of Peppermint flavoring, and of course topped off with whip cream.  It is almost a dessert in a mug, life doesn’t get much better than that!

Did you know?
·     Hot Chocolate used to be used for medicinal purposes back in the 16th – 19th centuries

Great Gift Idea
This great gift idea can be homemade, purchased, or a combination of both. An RU Motivated Travel Mug, homemade hot chocolate mix or purchase a really good hot chocolate mix, Peppermint Syrup, Reddi Whip or any whipped cream, and of course mini marshmallows. This is a quick and easy gift that fits all price ranges from low to high and completely customized to your gift recipient.
