Peppermint White Chocolate Syrup

  1. Combine cream and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat and bring just to a boil. Meanwhile, place white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl.
  2. Pour hot cream mixture over chocolate and let sit for 5 minutes. Whisk until smooth, microwaving for about 10 seconds if needed to ensure all chocolate is completely melted. Whisk in the peppermint extract.
  3. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a jar or other airtight container. Cool at room temperature, and then transfer to refrigerator to store.

  1. Heat milk and syrup until steaming and whisk to froth, or use a milk frother to heat and froth.
  2. Transfer milk mixture to coffee cup and pour coffee on top. Stir together. Top with whipped cream and peppermint candy, if desired.


*This will make enough syrup for about 12 mochas

**Use whatever type of milk you like using in your coffee. I usually use almond milk which works well here.

***Feel free to use more or less syrup to suit your tastes depending on how sweet you like your mochas.

****If you really want to make the ultimate mocha, use freshly whipped cream with a little bit of peppermint extract added to it. :)
