What a beautiful subtle peppermint flavor this lovely, creamy treat imparts. Made as written, using white sugar and creme de menthe. This was delicious, I will be making this often. I garnished with a candy cane. Thanks for sharing Kate. Made for Rookie Tag Game.

Oh what a delightful treat - and why wouldn't it be?!? I used a little peppermint extract (will use schnapps in the evening but couldn't justify it at 7am lol) I had no candy canes for garnish and I'm kind of glad as it was quite minty enough as it was. Lovely coffee treat - thanks for sharing the recipe!

So much goodness, so little fat. I'm in Heaven. For a single serving: Used 1 tsp of white creme de menthe (not syrup), 1/2 c. espresso and a generous 1/2 c. skim milk for a tall latte. I knew the peppermint stick would melt into the coffee and I didn't want it too pepperminty. Cool Whip light in a can was the topping. Simply scrumptious, what better life purpose for a candy cane could there be?. I have 18 peppermint sticks left from Christmas and their fate has been determined!
