Peppermint mochas are my favorite holiday drink from Starbucks but with this copycat recipe I can make my own at home in just a few minutes! I save so much money on fancy coffee with this easy recipe! No espresso maker or special syrups required!
- 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips or 4 oz chopped dark chocolate
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
- 1 1/2 cups freshly brewed coffee
- whipped cream
In a small saucepan, combine chocolate chips, milk, vanilla extract, and peppermint extract. Heat on medium-low to medium heat, stirring frequently, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.
Divide coffee between two mugs. Pour half the chocolate mixture into each mug, about 1/3 cup each.
Stir to combine, and top with whipped cream. Add a drizzle of chocolate syrup and colored sugar, if you want!
