I’ll be the first to admit I love love LOVE Starbucks Peppermint Mocha. What I don’t love so much is the $5 price tag for a grande (12ounce) cup or this…
In a cup of coffee.
A cup that I drink so fast in the morning that if I could
afford I’d have another 2 or 3.
What to do.
Figure out how to make it at home. For less $$ and less calories.
I think this is pretty close
8 ounces strong coffee
1 tsp cocoa powder
about 2 ounces warmed milk
Splenda, to taste
about 1/8 tsp peppermint extract
I make my coffee in a french press and add the cocoa to the ground coffee, but I have also just stirred it into the brewed coffee and it works just the same.
Add warm milk and splenda & peppermint extract, stir. Drink up.
If you wanted to be extra fancy you could top with whipped cream and some crushed candy cane pieces.
