You know how mint hot chocolate is good, but nearly impossible to make well? I have solved that problem. Yay me!
Just make a cup of peppermint tea, let it sit 5-6 minutes until the flavor is reasonably strong, and take out the tea bag. (You can heat up the water again at this point, but I don't because it's usually the perfect temperature for me.) Then use the mint tea in place of the water for some instant cocoa mix, and top with whipped cream and sprinkles or something yummy like that.
It tastes even mintier than the tea alone, and if you put in enough chocolate, that is some gooooood stuff. (It should be chocolatey enough that it doesn't taste watery at all--don't be afraid to use more mix than usual!)
And, on a mostly unrelated note, light whipped cream doesn't really count as light if you put three cups of it on something like, say, a piece of pie. Ugh. Don't try it, 'kay?
