Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer

Yum, yum, yum!

This is oh so tasty!  And why not make your own coffee creamer?!  And its way better than the store bought creamer!  Plus its so easy!

I found the recipe from Alaska from Scratch, and its definitely a keeper!  Enjoy!

I doubled the recipe because I bought the large carton of half and half; and I'll be bringing it along for my holiday travels to share with the people I love!

-3/4 cup water
-3/4 cup sugar
-1/2 tsp cocoa powder
-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
-2 cups half and half

1. Add water and sugar to a small saucepan over medium-high heat; stir until the sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes. {This makes a simple syrup.}
2. Remove from heat.
3. Measure out 1 cup of the simple syrup, discard any extra or save for another use {I had a perfect amount!}
4. Mix the cocoa into the hot simple syrup {if it cools you can end up with clumps of cocoa}.
5. Stir in the vanilla and peppermint extract.
6. Allow mixture to cool about 10 minutes then mix in half and half.
7. Stir well and store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
8. Shake well before each use.
9. Enjoy!
You can even make a festive label for your homemade creamer, enjoy!

Alaska from Scratch says you can adjust this recipe to your preferences; if you like it less sweet you can add more half and half or less of the simple syrup.  Or make it more sweet by adding less half and half.  

I think its just perfect!!!
