Peppermint Mocha

Serves 1

There is nothing like a hot cup of coffee first thing in the morning. However, during the winter months and especially for Christmas a peppermint mocha hits the spot! Unfortunately, sometimes when I go to a coffee shop my mocha can have too much peppermint resembling the nice minty flavor of toothpaste. Having had enough I made my own…and its pretty darn good. Its simple yet delicious! Enjoy!


  • 8-10 oz hot coffee
  • 1 packet Sugar free hot chocolate packet
  • 1 Tbsp crushed peppermint candy
  • 1/2 tsp crushed peppermint candy for garnishing
  • Whipped cream for garnish
  1. Make hot coffee.
  2. Put peppermint candies in a zip loc bag and hit it with a rolling pin until peppermint is crushed.
  3. Pour hot chocolate packet into your mug.
  4. Pour hot coffee on top of the chocolate mix and stir until completely dissolved.
  5. Take crushed peppermint and place in mug, stirring until completely dissolved.
  6. Spray whipped cream on top and garnish with remaining peppermint.
  7. If cookies present, swipe them and enjoy with your new favorite hot drink!
