Festive Peppermint Mocha Recipe

Right now a peppermint mocha is one of my favorite flavor variations! I have to say the result is pure bliss in my morning mug! My peppermint mocha recipe goes perfectly with the holiday season. I’ve been sipping mint mochas while I’m listening to Christmas songs, hanging Christmas decorations, and making my holiday lists. It’s the perfect treat to get me in the mood for the holidays!
