A Little Bit of Holiday Heaven

Edited to add: I am fascinated by sites that do recipes with follow along pictures. So this is my version. Consider it the first installment of "Office Cooking with Liz." Could become a regular feature- cooking breakfast, lunch, snacks in my office. Capturing it all with my cell phone camera. See what I do for you, my gentle readers? Just had to share... I am enjoying a cup of coffee. Not just any coffee. Liz's Holiday Special Coffee. 1 packet of Swiss Miss Dark Chocolate Sensation (I get mine at Super Target. It's in a brown box and usually runs around $1 for a box of 8 packets.) Coffee Coffee Mate Peppermint Mocha Liquid Creamer My method... Empty packet into my mug.
Add a smidge of HOT water.
Mix well. So that you have a nice, creamy, thick chocolate liquid.
Add coffee, fill the cup. Don't let the pot fool you... it's definitely NOT decaf!
Add creamer to taste. That first step really makes a difference. Dissolves all of the powdered hot chocolate mix and eliminates those annoying clumps you can sometimes get. And to make it especially yummy... Trader Joe's Candy Cane Joe-Joe's. These are like Oreos but the creamy center has bits of peppermint in it. Heavenly! And to bring the whole heavenly mix together... Dip the cookie into the choco-coffee-minty drink!
You will hear those Christmas angels singing- I swear it!!
