It's that time of year again!
Yummy! I love this time of year when there's all kinds of yummy stuff for tasting.
I always make my own version of a peppermint mocha.
This luscious beverage is made with the Donut Shop coffee from the Keurig , a teaspoon of peppermint syrup (Starbucks, of course), 2 teaspoons of hot cocoa mix, topped off with cool whip, green colored sprinkles, peppermint candy and the candy cane is just for the picture. I don't usually put a candy cane in every cup I drink.
Normally, I squirt on the whipped topping because it is so much prettier. However, when I tried to use the can I had in my fridge, it went everywhere. Zoe, my chubby pug, loved it. She even got the little bit that was between my toes. LOL! So, even though this is not as pretty, I must admit that I really do preffer the taste of cool whip over the can stuff!
I think I need to make a trip to William Sanoma or something and get one of those fancy whipped cream makers that we used when I worked at Starbucks. Although, I would also need a bigger wardrobe if that was in my fridge. That would not be pretty!
Well, I think I am going to try my hand at Biscotti making today. My dear friend, Bernice, makes the most wonderful Biscotti and whenever she brings some to share at the studio, I abscond it immediately and hide it for myself. Selfish? Maybe. But it is sooo good.
Anyway, she shared the recipe with me and I will be trying it for the first time today. I am sure it will not be quite as good as her as it will be missing the Bernice love that she adds, but, I will suffer through.
Thank you Bernice!
Thanks for stopping by, XO, Mimi
