Nothing gets us in a festive mood more than a peppermint hot drink that reminds us of candy canes and holidays' cheers. This season of gift giving, which probably involves getting a book for each and everyone in your list, we are giving you this recipe inspired by Starbucks Peppermint Mocha. Wishing it will give you warm feelings and pure joy.

3 tablespoons powdered baking cocoa (preferred Ghirardelli-sweet ground chocolate and cocoa powder)
