How to Make a Peppermint Mocha Latte


To enjoy this delicious beverage from the comfort of your home any day, follow the Peppermint Mocha Latte recipe below (you’ll also find the recipe on the back of our Limited Edition Peppermint Chocolate Powder tin).


What’s in a Peppermint Mocha:


To make one serving:

  • Place 1/3 cup of powder into a 12-ounce mug.
  • Add in the brewed espresso until the mug is 3/4 of the way full.
  • Whisk and add in steamed milk (see directions for steaming milk below)


To steam milk:

  • Steam and froth the milk until foamy (if you don’t have a frother, you can use steam milk by heating it in a microwave or on the stove).
  • If desired, garnish with whipped cream, crushed candy canes (or peppermint candies), and chocolate chips (or a drizzle of chocolate syrup).  


Stock up on the ingredients and supplies to make this recipe, and soon you’ll be the go-to Peppermint Mocha Latte master in your home.
