Homemade Peppermint Mocha



  1. Make cup of coffee to your desired strength.
  2. Steam your cup of milk in a small pot. Whisk until it's nice and bubbly looking.
  3. Pour coffee into mug and add the rest of your ingredients, stirring to dissolve the sucanat and cocoa powder. Pour milk over top of coffee mixture.
  4. You can top with homemade whipped cream or a homemade marshmallow, and drizzling chocolate sauce or sprinkling cocoa powder or crushed peppermint candies on top would make even a nicer display for guests. But I'll be honest: I don't do all that. ???? I guess I'm just lazy and want my peppermint mocha while it's hot!


* The strength of your coffee is all your personal preference. If you aren't typically a coffee drinker and just want to see if you like a peppermint mocha, try experimenting by just making a regular cup. I typically make mine with 1 Tbsp. of coffee to 1 cup water--which really isn't very strong, but it's twice as strong as a normal cup I'd make for myself. The coffee shop peppermint mocha is made with a very strong espresso.
