    I made this as an indulgent breakfast treat for myself today. I used a couple of drop of peppermint extract instead of the crushed candies and just sweetened to taste.

    I scaled this down to serve one using some dark chocolate chips and a half a candy cane, I also added some milk. This is really tasty & the hint of mint goes really well in this. made for ZWT 4.

    I really enjoyed this for breakfast today, its cold, windy and snowing here. This brought sunshine and a smile to my face. I love that you can taste the coffee, chocolate and mint seperately. I used bittersweet chocolate, expresso and crushed mint candies. This is a lovely drink with subtle and strong flavours. Thanks so much for sharing another winner Annacia.

    Nice dessert coffee. I used espresso and semisweet chocolate. I must not of chopped the chocolate fine enough 'cause the mint dissolved into the espresso, but the chocolate didn't. It was a touch too sweet for me even with most of the chocolate in the bottom, but I wouldn't want to cut back on the mints to decrease the sugar because the mint flavor is already pretty subtle. Next time I'll leave out the powdered sugar and use sugar free chocolate syrup instead of the chopped chocolate and see how that works for me. As is, I would serve it to guests or recommend it to friends that do sugar better than I do. Thanks for posting.

    Love this recipe! I used espresso and semisweet chocolate for this lovely drink. I crushed candy canes since I did not have round peppermint candies and it worked just fine. Thanks for posting! It was just what I was looking for!
