  1. In the microwave (or stove) heat milk and peppermint extract until hot and steaming (but not boiling), about 1-2 minutes.
  2. Add in cocoa powder and sugar and whip with a whisk until the milk is foamy, about 30 seconds to a minute.
  3. In a mug with a 1/4 c of espresso, pour in the frothed milk. Top with whipped cream, mini chips, winter sprinkles, and chocolate syrup.
