Winter favorite! A comforting chocolate peppermint mocha recipe, made with chocolate chips and crushed peppermint candy.
Over the years, I’ve tried and tested so many different versions of peppermint mocha, but this one is by far the best. Let me show you how easy it is:
HOMEMADE PEPPERMINT MOCHA
1/2 cup freshly brewed coffee
1/2 cup milk (or half and half)
3 tablespoons chocolate chips
1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract or 2 tablespoons crushed peppermint candy
sugar to taste
Brew coffee and pour into the mug. Add chocolate chips and peppermint (extract or crushed candies) and stir until chocolate and peppermint are melted. Add milk, sugar to taste and stir well. Garnish with whipped cream and crushed peppermint.
Super simple to make! Also, this peppermint mocha version has like, half the calories, compared to one from Starbucks. As always, if you want to make it dairy free, feel free to use almond or coconut milk.
