So apparently when you are paying your own bills buying Starbucks becomes expensive!! Who knew……

My oldest called and asked me to come up with peppermint syrup for her hot chocolate! My first instinct was to tell her to just stir her hot chocolate with candy canes, but I was quickly informed that doesn’t make it strong enough!

I decided maybe a simple syrup made with candy canes would be the key. Simple syrups are, well, simple, they are a 1:1 ratio. So I threw some water and an equal amount of crushed candy canes in a pan, said a little prayer and waited.

When she finally got a chance to try it, well she was happy and so was I!

“Christmas In A Cup”

This was her exact quote when she called to tell me it was exactly what she wanted! I was so happy!

Now to be clear this is NOT a Starbucks copy cat recipe, she told me it wasn’t exactly the same but that she loved it!
