This easy Peppermint Mocha Latte is one of the easiest festive holiday drinks you can make. A warming latte is mixed with chocolate syrup and peppermint extract. Garnish it with crushed candy cane pieces for a Christmas drink that will keep you warm all season!
I am so excited to partner with De’Longhi and their amazing new line of coffee machines – the De’Longhi Lattissima One. This one-touch beverage maker is going to be keeping me and my family warm all winter!
De’Longhi is also collaborating with Cookie for Kids’ Cancer to help raise money for pediatric cancer research in the USA. It always brings a smile to my face when a company I love is working to give back to those in need, especially around the holiday season!
We love serving an easy peppermint mocha along with some easy spritz cookies or your favorite Christmas cookies for the ultimate festive indulgence. What pairs better than a warm espresso beverage and a sweet dessert? Nothing screams the holidays more in my opinion. We also love serving these homemade peppermint mochas with molasses cookies and snowball cookies!
Making a homemade peppermint mocha means you can enjoy this holiday favorite any time of year without waiting in line, spending $6 on a coffee, and waiting for coffee shops to start offering them. It’s a win-win-win! And with just a tap of the button, you can choose between coffee or espresso. All of this just a touch away.
Not only is the De’Longhi Lattissima One simple and user friendly, it is also well designed, bringing a modern and sleek look to your kitchen without taking up a lot of space.
What Is In A Peppermint Mocha
Peppermint mochas generally contain a few ingredients:
- Chocolate syrup
- Peppermint (usually extract or syrup)
This is a traditional peppermint mocha recipe. It is insanely easier than creating all of the components separately. Saving time means you can focus on the important things this holiday season!
How To Make A Mocha Latte
I just love how it is SO easy to create these peppermint coffee mochas with the De’Longhi Lattissima One. At the touch of a button, your holiday drink will be ready to go!
I premix the chocolate syrup and peppermint extract with a spoon in the bottom of the cup. If you’re making multiple peppermint mocha lattes, a mixing bowl might be easier.
Hit the button to create a quick latte. The warmth from the latte will help the chocolate peppermint syrup melt into the drink, so a quick stir is all you need!
Garnish the peppermint mocha lattes with crushed candy cane pieces. If you prefer, chocolate shavings also look beautiful on these Christmas drinks (or if you’re like me, both at the same time). Serve them alongside some delicious cookies and you’re set to enjoy your holiday season!
