Peppermint Mocha Coffee – Christmas in a Cup

By Rachel Gardner

It’s that time of year for Peppermint Mocha’s.  But in case you don’t have time to stop and get one at your favorite coffee shop or don’t want to spend the money, here’s one way to make it yourself.


  • 8 ounces coffee (I used Hazelnut in my K-Cup but any coffee will work)
  • Hot chocolate mix or chocolate syrup, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • ½ to 1 cup milk

Brew the coffee.  Add milk (I use skim because it makes it a little healthier.)   Add the hot chocolate mix or chocolate syrup and the peppermint extract.  Use a whisk to combine ingredients and froth.  Enjoy.

My name is Patty & I'm a full-time homemaker. I've been a full-time homemaker most of my adult life. I thought I'd probably go back to work when my kids were grown, and I did briefly, but I came back home as soon as my first grandchild was born. I learned that home was my favorite place to be and homemaking was and is my calling.
