Sweet Tooth Friday: Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son on December 1, 2011

Last week on Sweet Tooth Friday I shared my lastest addiction. Peppermint mocha muffins. It was a labor of love to get the recipe right, but I did.

But, I couldn’t just stop there, now could I? These muffins needed something to join them in the morning. Muffins aren’t breakfast alone, unless paired with coffee. Am I right?

Of course I am. Actually, any breakfast isn’t breakfast without coffee.

Taking my handy-dandy base for coffee creamer, I’ve added to my recipe collection which already includes Pumpkin Spice, Chocolate Almond and French Vanilla. Please welcome Peppermint Mocha coffee creamer. It’s like Starbucks, only easier.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ll still be enjoying Peppermint Mochas from Starbucks, I can’t go the season without one, or 10. But this is a great option when the craving strikes and I can’t leave the house. Or don’t want to, because it’s just too flipping cold outside.

By the way, it’s in the 30’s here, and if that’s already too cold, I’m in trouble once January comes around. I’ll have to keep plenty of this creamer on hand to make it through.
