Step by Step Method

Step 1

In a saucepan over low heat combine coffee and 1/4 cup milk. Add sugar, cool and chocolate over low heat for 4-5 minutes until chocolate melts, stirring frequently. (DO NOT SIMMER). Stir in peppermint oil. Divide hot coffee mixture among 6 small coffee cups.

Step 2

Place remaining 1/4 cup milk in a microwave-safe 1-cup container with a lid. Shake for one minute or until milk is frothy and doubled in volume. Remove lid and microwave milk at high for 30 seconds. Top each coffee cup with a dollop of milk froth. Divide any remaining hot milk evenly among cups. Garnish each cup with crushed peppermint, if desired.


No special items needed.

This is such a delicious latte recipe. My frothy milk melted into the hot latte base too quickly, so my photo doesn't show the froth or crushed peppermint floating on top. I started with 2 drops of peppermint, and it seemed just right for my penchant for having a pretty strong mint flavor in my hot beverages, but would have been good even with just 1 drop of peppermint oil. It's a great latte recipe as written, and it doesn't need any adjustments or upgrades. Thanks, ellie!
