Ingredients
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 2-3 Tbsp brown sugar (2 Tbsp if you like it less sweet; 3 Tbsp if you prefer a sweeter creamer)
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp instant espresso powder
  • 1/4 tsp peppermint extract (peppermint extract is really strong, and a little goes a long way. If 1/4 tsp is not minty enough, feel free to add more)
Instructions
  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk half & half over med-low heat, until it begins to simmer.
  2. Add in brown sugar (I used 2 Tbsp, but if you prefer sweeter creamer, use 3 Tbsp), and whisk until combined with half & half.
  3. Add in cocoa powder and espresso powder, and whisk until completely dissolved.
  4. Lastly, add in peppermint extract. Turn off the heat and allow to creamer to cool down.
  5. Store in an airtight container, such as a glass jar with a lid.
  6. Enjoy!
