    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup water
    • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
    • 3 tablespoons powdered cocoa mix
    • 3 tablespoons warm water
    • 1/2 cup hot espresso
    • 1 1/2 cups hot milk or 1 1/2 cups soymilk
    • whipped cream (optional)


    1. 1
      In a small saucepan, combine water and sugar. Bring to a boil. When sugar is dissolved, reduce to a simmer, add peppermint extract and simmer 20 minutes. (This makes enough for 6 drinks!).
    2. 2
      In a warmed mug, combine cocoa mix and water, stirring to form a paste. Add the espresso, 1/2 Tbsp of peppermint syrup and the milk. Stir until well combined. Top with whipped cream if desired.

      Yum! I would like a little more mint in mine so I will make another batch of syrup with triple the mint. I think the ratio of espresso to milk is spot on. I made mine sugar free with stevia (instead of sugar) and sugar free hot cocoa (but note that you will use only 1 T of sugar free cocoa instead of 3T regular cocoa due to the decreased volume)! UPDATE: I made this again today with the leftover syrup. If you follow the instructions, you will end up with almost 2.5 cups of liquid which we find is enough for 2 people - so if you are making this for just 1 person, make sure you have a mighty big mug!!! (Most mugs only accommodate 8oz or 12oz).
