A homemade peppermint mocha latte is the perfect pairing to have with a Holiday Cookie once all the baking is done!

Peppermint Mocha Latte long

I love holiday baking! I did a lot of baking during the holidays before we had kids and now that the kids are old enough to “help” me bake, it’s even more fun.  I like to bake the standards, like cut out sugar cookies, but I also enjoy mixing it up every year with something new.

After a long day of holiday baking, I’m usually beat.  Cleaning up the mess is not really the best part of the activity.  But sitting down to a plate full of fresh baked cookies with a nice cup of coffee is just about the best part of the holidays. I love holiday coffee so I created a favorite holiday coffee drink, peppermint mocha, at home using Folgers® Black Silk coffee in place of espresso.

I brewed the Folgers Black Silk nice and strong and then added in hot milk mixed with dark chocolate and peppermint extract.

Add a dollop of whipped cream and some crushed candy canes on top for the perfect end to our Holiday Cookie baking!

  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract

Instructions

  1. In a small pan, heat the half and half over medium heat, whisking so it doesn't burn.
  2. Once the half and half is hot, stir in chocolate chips and stir until completely melted.
  3. Turn off the heat and add in peppermint.
  4. Pour coffee in to a mug. Add as much as the half and half mixture as you'd like.
