I have been looking for a way to bring some mint into my hot cocoa or coffee without spending money on extracts or things I normally do not have. Well, thin mints I love to keep in my freezer and now I have something to do with them besides eat them all.

hot strong coffee
whipped cream (optional)
chocolate shavings (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a microwave-safe mug place peppermint pattie pieces and milk.

Top with whipped cream, and shaved chocolate if desired. Serve immediately.

This same idea can be used with your favorite prepared cocoa mix. Just melt the candy in with a little of the cocoa liquid (milk, water) or some of the prepared liquid just put in a mug. Gives it the right amount of mint taste!
