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.

How to Make Peppermint Cappuccino

Step-by-Step

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

    Microwave at HIGH 20-30 seconds or until candy is melted and smooth when stirred. Stir in hot coffee until mug is almost full.

    Top with whipped cream, and shaved chocolate if desired. Serve immediately.
  • 2This 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!
