Junior Mint Coffee

I made a delicious morning coffee today.  It may not be a new invention but it was for me.  If you like Junior Mint candy and coffee you will love this.  Brew your favorite cup of Joe but nothing fancy or flavored just plain coffee.  Then grab your favorite mug and add four Junior Mints to the bottom.  Pour coffee into your cup and add a spoon of sugar.  Finally, stir and enjoy!
