Chocolate Mocha Latte with Peppermint Cream



Some time ago one of my sisters sent me a box of Starbucks Mocha Singles.
 
 
 I don't drink a lot of coffee, especially not instant, but I was pretty sure if she likes them I would too! ☺ I discovered that they are perfect for this recipe that I'm about to share with you. I hope you enjoy it too!
 
3 cups milk
¼ cup Hershey's Chocolate Syrup
1 Starbucks Mocha Single
 
½ cup heavy cream
½ cup marshmallow cream
1-2 drops peppermint extract
crushed candy cane pieces
 
In a small saucepan combine the first three ingredients. Heat over medium heat until it is very steamy but not boiling. Stir it occasionally.
 
Meanwhile whip the heavy cream until it is firm. Add the marshmallow cream and whip or stir to combine. Stir in the peppermint extract and the candy cane pieces. Place a dollop on top of each cup of latte.
 
 
Serves 2.
 
It is a gorgeous Autumn day outside so I think Serena and I will enjoy it going for a walk with her pony. I walk, she rides, everyone is happy! ☺ And our hunters are on their way home!! ☺
Enjoy your weekend!

The party's here!
See Ya In The Gumbo

  4. Martha, you seriously have got to stop with all of these awesome sweets! I just bought a new scale, only to find that my old one was under-weighing. You are not helping!!!

    So for real-I love the way you dressed up the Starbucks. And the pictures are super cute! Thank you for linking up.
