Starbucks Double Chocolate Peppermint Mocha


I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I know I did!
I savored every single moment of the celebration with my family.
I too enjoyed eating some delicious food with friends and relatives. Although we couldn’t eat it all in one night. You know what that means?

My family and I currently have a ton of leftover food from the Christmas gatherings that we had this past weekend, (Do you usually have plenty of leftover food after the holidays?) and since we have so much, I am taking a rest from cooking this week. However, I still will be blogging and want to share with you a few coffee drinks, smoothies and maybe one dessert.

I know that I’ve stated this before in my blog post (Crockpot Vanilla Latte), but I am a huge coffee lover lol. My go-to place for coffee is Starbucks, I go there quite regularly to buy a tall regular coffee because I’m trying extremely hard to be frugal with my money, but I do admit that it sometimes can be quite challenging and tempting not to order one of their fancy drinks. So I’ve come up with the perfect solution and making my own fancy coffee drinks in the comfort of my home.

 I want to share with you this Starbuck’s Double Chocolate Peppermint Mocha recipe that I tried and I, of course, loved it!!! If you are the same as me and you’re trying to save your cash by making your own fancy coffee drinks from the comfort of your own home, then may I suggest you treat yourself into making this yummy drink.

Scrumptious, rich, chocolatey, easy as 1-2-3 to prepare and did I mention that it’s delicious?
