Mint Oreo Hot Cocoa
The leaves are turning colors, falling off the trees and the snow is starting to fly in Colorado. I have a passion for this time of year for tons of reasons and one of them just happens to be the ability to cuddle up on the coach with a warm drink in my hands. A warm drink that is steaming, while warming my hands as I cuddle them around my favorite mug.
In the past I have gotten Cory to join me but not with the eagerness for decadent homemade hot chocolate that I expect, most certainly he never actually asks because how is hot cocoa better than his mountain dew? This year though I have him eating (drinking) from the palm of my hands with this Mint Oreo Hot Cocoa recipe. Mint Oreo’s and mint chip ice cream are among his favorite foods and this Mint Oreo Hot Cocoa combines them together. The topping of this Mint Oreo Hot Cocoa with whip cream (I always have homemade in my house) gives it a creamy finish, which reminds me of ice cream. See it’s the pairing of two of his favorite desserts so how can I go wrong?
