How to Make: Starbucks Peppermint Mocha

It’s mid-November, which means CHRISTMAS IS ALMOST HERE!!! There’s already a little bit of snow on the ground, and the temperatures are getting cooler. I can’t wait to start celebrating the holidays; the decorations… the music…

…And, of course…

That’s right, I’m talking about the Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks; one of my favorite holiday drinks. If you’ve never had a Peppermint Mocha, this (highly pixelated) picture doesn’t do it justice. It. Is. AMAZING.

And I actually found a recipe for it recently, so I thought I’d share that recipe with you!

To make this drink, you will need…

• 3 tablespoons Starbucks Mocha Powder (you could use regular mocha powder instead)

• 1 1/2 tablespoons Starbucks Peppermint Syrup (once again; if you can’t find Starbucks peppermint syrup, I’m pretty sure regular peppermint syrup will work :) )

•  1/4 cup of double strength dark roast coffee

• 12 ounces steamed or heated milk

• Freshly Whipped Cream

• Red peppermint sprinkles (OPTIONAL!)

PROCEDURE:

1. Combine equal parts Starbucks mocha powder and warm water to create a wonderfully rich chocolate syrup.

2. Pour the mocha syrup into a 12 oz mug.

3. Add a shot of  espresso and peppermint syrup.

4. Fill the remainder of the cup with steamed milk.

5. Top it all off with freshly whipped cream and red sprinkles (optional).  

ENJOY!
