So of course it seems only perfect to recreate one of the best chocolate mint candies out there – the Peppermint Patty!
With less emphasis on the chocolate and more on the creamy mint filling, we wanted to make a latte that would capture the immaculate taste of this candy and leave you cooled and refreshed in the same way.
It’s an easy drink to make and only takes a few ingredients that are common pantry staples. If you don’t have an at-home espresso brewer, don’t worry. We have all the best recommendations for substitutions and making this drink your own.
What You’ll Need
- Fresh espresso
- Peppermint extract
- Vanilla syrup
- Creamer of choice
- Milk frother
- 2 Serving glasses
These ingredients are simple and easy to find at most grocery stores. Hershy’s chocolate sauce is a great option, but you can always use other types of chocolate sauce such as Ghirardelli’s.
McCormicks Peppermint Extract is great quality for getting that perfect peppermint flavor, but if you like your drinks extra sweet, you could try a peppermint syrup that has added sugar.
Adding vanilla syrup helps bring out the peppermint flavor even more, as well as adding some additional sweetness. You can substitute vanilla extract if you like your drinks less sweet.
We always suggest using your preferred dairy base – whether that’s an alternative milk like almond or oat, or you like a rich and creamy breve latte, the choice is yours! If you are using an alternative milk, we highly suggest using one without a flavor or added sweetener.
Lastly, you really can’t beat fresh espresso that is made directly from fresh grinds. If you have an AeroPress, that makes for a good alternative espresso type that works well and with similar flavoring. In a pinch, instant espresso or a highly concentrated cold brew can work too.
