A homemade peppermint mocha latte is the perfect pairing to have with a Holiday Cookie once all the baking is done!

Peppermint Mocha Latte long

I love holiday baking! I did a lot of baking during the holidays before we had kids and now that the kids are old enough to “help” me bake, it's even more fun.  I like to bake the standards, like cut out sugar cookies, but I also enjoy mixing it up every year with something new.

After a long day of holiday baking, I'm usually beat.  Cleaning up the mess is not really the best part of the activity.  But sitting down to a plate full of fresh baked cookies with a nice cup of coffee is just about the best part of the holidays. I love holiday coffee so I created a favorite holiday coffee drink, peppermint mocha, at home using Folgers® Black Silk coffee in place of espresso.

I brewed the Folgers Black Silk nice and strong and then added in hot milk mixed with dark chocolate and peppermint extract.

Add a dollop of whipped cream and some crushed candy canes on top for the perfect end to our Holiday Cookie baking!
