Peppermint Ice Blended Mocha


Part deux of the holiday brunch.

Does anyone else have a habit for grossly overestimating quantities of food for large parties?  I think I had about half a gallon of hot chocolate leftover, so for an extremely nutritious (and diabetic friendly) breakfast, I infused it with some candy canes and then blended it with ice cream, coffee powder and garnished it with an unhealthy dollop of whipped cream.

Oh, and Merry Christmas everyone.

I need better handwriting

Peppermint Ice Blended Mocha

SERVES 1

Some seriously good hot chocolate
Candy canes
instant coffee powder
vanilla ice cream
ice cubes
freshly whipped cream + cocoa powder to garnish

First off, dissolve some candy canes in hot chocolate- you can either let it dissolve overnight in the fridge or on the stove.  From my extremely scientific and accurate guesstimations, I'd go with 1 candy cane per every two servings.  Blend a cup or so with a teaspoon or two of instant coffee powder, some vanilla ice cream, and ice cubes.  Garnish with whipped cream and cocoa powder.
