This is so delicious that I can actually see drinking it for breakfast on Christmas morning. Envision sitting and opening gifts with a steaming mug of this hot peppermint mocha in hand.

This is so delicious and I know that you’ll make it often! If you love the taste of peppermint though, I have some additional recipes below. In this first recipe…I hate to even call it that because it’s as easy peasy as pie. Actually easy as cheesecake and all that I did was to embellish a store bought cheesecake with PEPPERMINT. Give me peppermint everything during the holiday season! Did you know that eating peppermint clears the palette, soothes the tummy and can give you fresher breath?
