I absolutely fell in love with peppermint mocha coffee mate, but since it's only a seasonal flavor I was having major withdrawals when I couldn't find it.. so I set myself on the task of creating the perfect copycat.. and here it is :)
- 1 pint fat-free half-and-half (or regular, but I like the fat free, lol)
- 1⁄4 cup white chocolate chips
- 1⁄8 cup peppermint syrup (I got mine at Starbucks for about $6)
- pour the half and half into a medium saucepan.
- stir chocolate chips into the pan.
- turn the heat onto medium-low and melt the chocolate into the half and half.
- DO NOT LET THIS BOIL.
- Once the chocolate is melted turn the heat off.
- give it a good stir and mix in the peppermint syrup.
- Store in a container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks :) (but it never lasts that long, lol).
I have started using Recipe #56460 for the syrup just use peppermint extract for the vanilla. I have made this many times since my first post. I found that if you put the white choc. chips in a small amount of 1/2 and 1/2 and when melted then add the remaining 1/2 and 1/2 plus the peppermint syrup. It works much better. LOVE THIS RECIPE. I made this as written and it is very good, but I will add more syrup on the next batch as I like mint flavoring. I used a white mint chocolate chip that had sprinkles on it and that turned the creamer pink. Didn't affect the drinks though, and will be making this all the time. Thanks for finding and posting the recipe.
This is yummy! I order my flavored syrups from a local coffee shop. They sell the Monin syrups - so I go to their website and pick the flavors I want ordered. The shop sold all the peppermint this month before I found this recipe so I bought the Frosted Mint. This is very good. It is light with a hint of the mint. I used 1/2 choc. chips after reading some of the reviews and 1/4 c. mint flavoring due to it being such a light taste. I also added a couple tablespoons of the mint flavoring in to the whipped topping for my drink and my boys hot choc. drinks. I added candy canes for stirring. Very comforting drink. Thank you for sharing it
I am drinking a cup of coffee with my new Peppermint Mocha Creamer. I stocked up enough of the powder creamer (Peppermint Mocha) back in December and knew it would only get me to July. I figured I would deal with it at that point. After searching endlessly online and being ready to drink expired powder (if i could even find that) I found this recipe. THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I can make it through the holidays and at that might just keep making my own. I did add more peppermint syrup because I really like the mint taste. Thank you Ashbabe for coming up with this recipe for all the Peppermint Creamer Addicts that there are out there. Cheers!
