homemade whipped cream

chocolate curls for topping

For Aimee's Peppermint Simple Syrup:

 1/2 cup water

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon peppermint extract

 In a saucepan over medium heat, heat the water and sugar and cook until the sugar dissolves. This is your simple syrup. Remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon peppermint extract. Store in a mason jar and set aside.

For Aimee's Peppermint Mocha Latte:

Place 1/2 packet of hot cocoa mix in the bottom of your mug. Stir in 1 Tablespoon of peppermint simple syrup to make a paste. Add one shot of freshly brewed espresso (or 2 shots to make it a double) and then add 1/2 cup heated milk, (to which you have added 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract). Stir all together then top with homemade whipped cream and chocolate curls.
