Hi sweet readers,
It looks like someone is in an early Christmas/holiday season mood this year. 🙂
Each year i have started very late with Christmas/holiday posst, but this year I thought I start early.
Today it was snowing here in Sweden and it is so pretty everywhere.
I did an ad for a Swedish company called @Bakboxen today, they wanted to have a Christmas style picture which I posted on Instagram earlier today.
I took even a picture outside in the snow, but did not stay outside for long, as it is way too cold.
In collaboration with @bakboxen I have put together some of my absolute favorite recipe’s for Christmas ? in their next beautiful box – the November box. This is my 3rd out of 4 baking boxes.
And this one you don’t wanna miss out of. Best of all, you get 60,- SEK discount on your first box order by using the code MANUELA60.
Visit their website her.
After being out in the snow, I thought it would be lovely to make a delicious
“Peppermint Mocha Latte” just like they sell at Starbucks.
this Peppermint Mocha Latte is a holiday classic made with espresso, steamed milk melted with crushed candy canes, dark chocolate and coffee . It’s all topped off with whipped cream and some more crushed candy.
Peppermint Mocha Latte ( yield 2)
- 2 cup espresso
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons crushed candy cane
- 75 gram dark chopped chocolate
- Whipped Cream
- 2. tsp crushed candy cane
- pour the milk in a saucepan, bring it to a simmer.
- Add the crushed candy canes and let it simmer until the crushed candy cane is dissolved.
- Add the dark chocolate, put it back on the stove and whisk until the chocolate is melted.
Pour the warm espresso into your mugs, followed by the chocolate mixture
Decorate with some sweetened whipped cream and crushed candy on top. this one is definitely one of my holiday favorites, I hope it will be yours too.
Have a great day all of you,
Love Manuela xo
