I have recently become completely and utterly obsessed with the Starbucks Skinny Peppermint Mocha latte. I honestly have a problem. I have to limit myself to one a week (okay, maybe two and one on the weekend). When my sister, Julie, and I were making desserts for Thanksgiving we decided to transform that Starbucks deliciousness to our very own original dessert – the Peppermint Mocha Truffle!
These Peppermint Mocha Truffles and the perfect no-bake dessert! The combination of chocolate, peppermint and the slightest hint of coffee is simply perfect (if I do say so myself). The best part is that they are really easy to make and can be prepared and frozen until needed – but I promise you, they won’t last long at all!!!
