I discovered this recipe shortly after my buttermints post. Its a pretty interesting story so sit down. I mean, I know your probably already sitting, because you know….this is a…umm…blog. AHHHH! Just forget it y’all. Lets start the story.
My sister made some chocolate sauce one day and left it….alone….in a mason jar….on the table! 😯 Like who does that?!?! So the next morning I was going to make my morning coffee, and I saw the poor baby sitting there. The panic was so strong y’all I could barely think! My face=this:
All I was thinking about was how to get it all in my face before she found me sitting under the table with chocolate sauce all over me. And then I was like…wait, wont she notice the stuff has gone missing? At which point I turned my head towards the coffee make and forced myself to move forwards. When I was reaching for the honey to sweeten my coffee, I was like HEY! Chocolate sauce is mainly made up of honey right? So why not steal just a spoonful? She so won’t notice that!
And so, very sneaky like, I looked to see if anyone was coming and I backed up a couple steps to the table. Y’all, if anyone saw me I probably looked sooo guilty, but I figured everyone else was still sleeping so I went for it. I reached my hand out blindly grabbing the jar while I had my head trained on the door. Once the subject was captured, the lone operative returned to base and made the subject talk. In other words I (struggled for a minute and) removed the lid and scooped out a heaping spoonful. Put it in my cup, and poured in the coffee. Y’all…as you can imagine, my excitement meter was much higher than a typical morning at 8:00.
So in my head I was like this:
But on the outside it was probably a little closer to this:
The product was super chocolaty and sweet coffee. It was kinda like hot chocolate, and coffee at the same time. I drank that for a few days before I saw the buttermint jar on the counter by the coffee pot. At which point I questioned myself as to why I had not noticed it there before. I am now assuming that it was because every time I am in that area of that kitchen, I am still half asleep trying to not miss my coffee mug when pouring the coffee. 😉
When I put a buttermint in my mug along with the chocolate sauce….MAGIC!!! Like, Oh my gosh y’all.Like Christmas in a mug. Like love in a drink. Like heaven peed in a cup. Okay….maybe we’re going overboard now. But you get the idea.
Anyways, let me show you how to make this bad boy:
First, gather up all your ingredients…heavy cream, any flavor coffee is fine, chocolate sauce, and a buttermint.
Pour the chocolate sauce in your favorite mug.
Put the buttermint in, too.
Add the coffee and stir til the buttermint has dissolved.
And stir in the heavy cream.
