Description

Make your favorite holiday flavored coffee creamer at home—simple, delicious, and money-saving, too.

Ingredients

  • ¾ cups Water
  • ¾ cups Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Cocoa Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoons Peppermint Extract
  • 2 cups Half-and-half

Preparation

To a saucepan over medium-high heat, add the water and the sugar. Stir until the mixture heats up and the sugar dissolves, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat. Measure 1 cup of the mixture, also known as simple syrup (save any remaining for another use or discard). To the 1 cup of simple syrup, whisk in the cocoa powder (you have to do this while the simple syrup is still hot or else the cocoa will clump), followed by the vanilla and peppermint. Allow the mixture to cool 5-10 minutes and then add it to the half-and-half. Stir well.

Keep in a sealed container (I use a Mason jar) in the refrigerator. Use as you would store-bought coffee creamer. Shake or stir before each use as the cocoa will settle to the bottom.

Notes: You can always adjust homemade creamer to your preference. If you like your creamer less sweet, add more half-and-half until your perfect blend is reached. Or if you prefer it sweeter, add less half-and-half.
