This is sort of a "copy-cat" recipe... Have you ever tried McDonald's Hot Chocolate Peppermint Mocha? Well, I have, and I wasn't too impressed. So I went home and made my own and I think this is much better! See what you think... This is a richer, creamier and less costly version of the popular McDonald's product. I love McDonald's, but I have trouble spending $4 on a hot chocolate! Don't you? When you have kids, it all adds up! Also, if you are preparing this for the kiddos, cut back on the espresso powder! You will thank me later!
