I’m kind of into coffee. I like it light and sweet, and I’ve been known to have more cream in my coffee than actual coffee. While I do enjoy heading to a local coffee shop for some kind of mocha latte, I do like to make coffee at home. There are a few ways that I prefer to make it, but this homemade cappuccino mix is a simple way to bring the coffee shop to your home. And, it totally saves time AND money! Add a splash of peppermint mocha coffee creamer to transform this morning beverage into a seasonal treat.
The main ingredient to any delicious coffee is a creamer that adds flavor without watering down your morning cup of joe!
I love Dunkin’ Donuts’ Extra Extra creamer since it is exactly how I order my coffee at their drive through. However, the star of my seasonal celebrations includes International Delight Peppermint Mocha.
My favorite part of the holiday season includes browsing all the seasonal stuff that you can decorate your home with. I like to add a little bit of holiday cheer, and Target’s displays didn’t disappoint.
