The 12 days of Christmas...Day one: Peppermint Mocha ♥


Hello Everyone! Happy Friday!  Can you believe we are under two weeks till the big day? I'm so excited!  Thanks to my friend Billie Jo and her daughter Madison, I'm going to be participating in a 12 days of Christmas series.  For the next 12 days I will be posting a "short, simple, festive Christmas favorite". I know technically the 12 days of Christmas start on December 25th, but just for fun I thought I would start now, and according to my calculations this series will take me right past Christmas day.  It's going to be fun, so let's begin.
Day One...
How could I start anywhere but here ♥
Sometime in November I turn in my beloved pumpkin spice for peppermint mocha. I put this cream in my coffee every morning.  It's my absolute favorite for the winter.  So creamy and "pepperminty".  To me, this taste like Christmas! It's not available at any other time expect holiday time.  I think that's why I enjoy it so much.  I look forward to it and savor every sip until it goes away again. 
It's also pretty amazing in hot chocolate! Just sayin....♥
The weather here has been absolutely freezing. I take my coffee to go in the morning.  There is nothing like a sip of hot peppermint mocha on a cold and frosty morning.  Makes my ride to work a little bit more bearable.  Or curling up on the couch at night while the Christmas tree lights twinkle,  to watch The Crown (are you watching? I hope so!!! : )  with a cup of hot chocolate - peppermint mocha style.  So warm and cozy.
Thank you as always for joining me today! Please check back every day for the next 12 days to share with me another Christmas favorite!
Feel free to join in by posting your 12 days of Christmas! I would love to see them! And don't forget to hop over to  Billie Jo's blog (here) and Madison's blog (here) to see what wonderful things they are up to as well!
Happy Friday and Happy 12 Days of Christmas! ♥


  1. I am so happy you are joining in!!!
    And I actually have this in my fridge right now.
    I never thought of adding it to my cocoa!
    Tonight I will have some in my new favorite Christmas Mug. ; )
    Have a cozy Friday!

  2. I love peppermint mocha's! My favorite. :)

  3. Oh I’m so adding this tiny cocoa! I might just join in. It’s a great way to slow down and enjoy the 12 days 😊

  4. Great idea to add this to hot chocolate!! I just may have to try that!

  5. I've never tried this, as I prefer my coffee without flavoring, but I think it would be lovely in an occasional festive latte or hot chocolate. Thanks for sharing!
