How to Make Peppermint Coffee

Tis the season for all things warm minty and sweet. Peppermint is definitely a flavor that makes me think about the holidays, snow, presents, and just all the warm fuzzies that go along with this time of the year.

Peppermint coffee really embodies the holidays for me. And for just a standard peppermint coffee it is quite easy to make. Just make your coffee as you normally do, then add a drop of peppermint extract (careful a little goes a long way!)

For a more coffee bistro style peppermint coffee try the recipe below:

Chocolate Peppermint Coffee

  • Coffee made in your coffee maker
  • Candy Cane (small candy canes or the round hard peppermint candies also work)
  • Chocolate syrup
  • Milk
  1. Make your coffee as usual, but leave it black, don't add sugar or creamer.
  2. Crush the candy canes. 
  3. Fill your coffee mug about 1/4 full of the milk and heat in the microwave for about 30 - 45 seconds.
  4. Pour the coffee over the warm milk, pour in some chocolate syrup (to taste) and add your crushed candy cane. Stir up your coffee. (adjust chocolate and peppermint to taste)
  5. If you want you can also add whipped topping, drizzle with chocolate sauce and sprinkle some more crushed peppermint on top of the whipped cream.
