- 2 cups of TeeBox California Blend Coffee
- ½ cup of milk (or milk substitute)
- 3 tbsp. of sugar
- 1 tbsp. of cocoa powder
- 1 oz. of finely chopped bittersweet chocolate
- 2 drops of peppermint oil
- 2 crushed peppermint sticks
Coffee Steeping Directions:
- Begin by preparing your TeeBox California Blend Coffee. Place two TeeBox Steeped Coffee Bags into your 16 oz cup, and gradually pour 16 oz of hot water over the bags.
- Give those bags a little love by dunking them in the hot water for 15 seconds or more if you crave an extra kick.
- Allow the bags to steep for 5 minutes or until you achieve your desired strength and flavor profile.
Peppermint Mocha Directions:
- In a saucepan over low heat, combine the prepared TeeBox California Blend Coffee and 1/2 cup of milk (or your preferred milk substitute). Be cautious not to bring it to a boil; we want it to stay warm and comforting.
- Blend in the sugar, cocoa powder, and bittersweet chocolate, and let this delightful concoction cook for 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until all the ingredients meld into a harmonious symphony of flavors.
- Add a dash of magic with 2 drops of peppermint oil.
- Now, for the grand finale: Pour this velvety elixir into 4 mugs, depending on your preferred serving size.
- Crown each mug with a fluffy cloud of whipped cream and a sprinkle of crushed peppermint sticks. This isn't just for taste; it's a holiday decoration in a cup!
Serve up this TeeBox Holiday-Inspired California Blend Peppermint Mocha and bask in the joy of the season. It's a heartwarming experience in every sip.
