The holidays are definitely a favorite time of year for many; I know it is for our family. The tradition of hanging ornaments on the Christmas tree, opening gifts from each other, baking Christmas cookies, and enjoying a hot cup of Hazelnut Peppermint Mocha by the fire are just a few that are top on our list.
By far my favorite tradition that has been passed down over the years is from my Mother-in-law, our Holiday Snack Table. It’s actually a very simple concept, but one that brings many wonderful memories. A couple days before Christmas, I get the table ready by adding paper plates, napkins, mugs for our favorite hot drinks and a variety of snacks like cookies, their favorite Christmas recipes, and drinks.
Then throughout Christmas week, our family and guests enjoy our time together without all the fuss. Creating special drinks to go along with dessert or after dinner is so fun.
This Hazelnut Peppermint Mocha is very easy with only 4 ingredients, plus hot water and garnish. I enjoy it hot with a dollop of COOL WHIP Whipped Topping and a sprinkle of PEPPERMINTMALLOWS, but you can also serve it over ice.

Hazelnut Peppermint Mocha
The aroma of hazelnut coffee is always wonderful. But we've discovered the experience is even more luxurious when you add peppermint extract.
