Peppermint Mocha Coffee creamer

Okay, so last week I professed my love for my coffee mug, Today I'm gonna let y'all in on the secret of what I put in that cup {and no, it's not Booze, lol} I absolutely fell In LOVE with peppermint mocha coffee-mate, it was on sale and I had a coupon and I bought 2 bottles on a whim.. I thought, why not just try it 'tis the season and all. When I ran out I was distraught, I couldn't find it anywhere, so I searched online, I had to find it somewhere... But the only store online that I could buy it from wouldn't ship it to NY.. so I was outta luck.. so I tried contacting Coffee mate and they gave me a very bland response..

Well, that was it and I never heard from them again... but the scary kinda thing is there is a huge following for this stuff, I was absolutely astounded at the amount of posts that I found online regarding Peppermint Mocha Coffee-Mate, but nobody had a recipe, everyone just wanted the original thing.. but not me, if I can't find the real thing I'm gonna do the next best thing and make the best dang copycat that I can make... and so I did...

Ingredients

  • 1 pint fat-free half-and-half (or regular, but I like the fat free)
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/8 cup peppermint syrup (I got mine at Starbucks for about $6)

Directions

  1. pour the half and half into a medium saucepan.
  2. stir chocolate chips into the pan.
  3. turn the heat onto medium-low and melt the chocolate into the half and half.
  4. DO NOT LET THIS BOIL.
  5. Once the chocolate is melted turn the heat off.
  6. Store in a container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks :) (but it never lasts that long, lol).
this stuff makes my coffee Happy :)


This is a real pic, straight out of the Senseo my coffee looked like this one morning and I almost fell right over.. that is one seriously happy cup of coffee :)

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I wish there were more people in the world like you. I'm pregnant right now, and I've been craving this! I hate buying from starbucks because it is so expensive - so now I can have it at home!!
