Betty’s Peppermint Latte

(click continue reading for recipe)
Peppermint Latte

3 tablespoons cocoa powder
3 tablespoons warm water
4 ounces hot prepared coffee
1 ½ tablespoons peppermint flavoring
12 ounces milk, scalded
whipped topping, as desired (You may use Cool Whip or sweetened whipped topping.)
finely-crushed peppermint candy

In a small bowl, stir together cocoa powder and warm water. Pour mixture into a 16-ounce mug or a heat-proof glass. Add hot coffee, followed by peppermint flavoring. Stir lightly. Fill the remainder of the container with scalded milk (to about ½ inch from the top). Stir lightly. Garnish with sweetened whipped topping and crushed peppermint candy. Enjoy!-Betty

Note: If you normally sweeten your coffee, you may want to add sugar to the brewed coffee component (to taste), I personally like the amount of sweetness using only the sweetened whipped topping for sweetness.
