A LOVELY drink for this colder weather....

I am a big fan of hot cocoa and also of Brach's Holiday Nougat mints.
A few days ago I decided to see what dissolving one of those mint nougats in a cup of plain old swiss mint cocoa tasted like.

OMG it's DELICIOUS.

If you like mint in your coca, this is a quick, easy and delicious way to have it, without buying the "gourmet" hot cocoa

FYI these nougats are the ones with the green Christmas tree in the middle and look like this

    The thermometer hit 77 today. Not quite colder weather yet over on this side but I like the idea. Might have to try it anyway. 🤔

    If you want something to put you to sleep, and like the mint taste, put some peppermint schnapps in your hot cocoa! Also great for cross country skiing!!

    I’ve never been a fan of mint n want thing which is funny because I like mint taste.  This one sounds like a winner.

    As an experiment I decided to put some eggnog in coffee once.  BAD idea  :s

    I'm always drinking coffee, and always have an insulated mug of it with me wherever I go...

    Pour some vodka over ice. Let it sit for 5 minutes. Pour it down the sink. Take a swig from the bottle. It's winter, forgodssake.

    My vodka is in the freezer where it belongs.  Makes for a killer Bloody Mary when you need no ice 😎

    You dont like scrambled eggs in your coffee?

    If I need a drink to warm me up at night I will do like my dad and I did the night before deer opener.  My dad decided to finally open the bottle of 18 year Glenlivet I got him for his birthday last year.  I usually keep a couple options at home for a night cap appropriate for how the day went or the next day is going to go.
