Is Starbucks discontinuing peppermint mocha?

What is in a peppermint mocha?

There are several different ways to describe a peppermint mocha: Mint chocolate, mint mocha, peppermint mocha.

I prefer the term peppermint mocha because it doesn't feel like a mint chocolate, and it is just a bit less vague.

As with all mochas, this recipe uses a chocolate base with either espresso or plain brewed coffee as the liquid ingredient. This base also includes sugar (as a sweetener) and milk or cream.

Some people prefer a stronger mint flavor than others, so you can adjust the amount of mint used in this recipe. For an extra strong minty flavor, use two tablespoons mint extract or more.

This is a super easy, very tasty, refreshing mocha that is perfect for any occasion. It is versatile, too: You can use it to make a peppermint mocha latte (one of my favorite treats from Starbucks), or even add some chopped mint leaves on top. It makes a great kids drink, too.

A peppermint mocha should be made with peppermint extract or pure peppermint oil, so you don't get any after-taste. And although peppermint extract is often used for these types of drinks, the oil also works great.

You can find both in specialty stores, health food stores, and online (including at Amazon). If you want a stronger mint flavor, go with pure peppermint extract or peppermint oil. If you are using a lower quality product, make sure that it doesn't have any added flavorings, which would overpower the mint.

How to make a peppermint mocha. The following is my easy recipe for a peppermint mocha. I hope it helps you make your own version at home.

This recipe uses a combination of coffee and milk or cream. To keep it healthy, I recommend using whole milk or dairy-free soy milk or plant-based milk (almond milk, oat milk, etc. I prefer plain brewed coffee over espresso, and regular brewed coffee works fine, too.

For the chocolate base, I like using 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips. I used Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Fudge Chips, which worked really well.

Can you still get peppermint mocha?

I know that it is a seasonal thing, but I really want to know if you can still get peppermint mocha?

I've never had it before. I have always thought of it as being like a peppermint hot chocolate, but it sounds like it is more of a drink than a drink.

Do you know how it compares to peppermint mocha? Is it similar in flavor? My son and I both love this drink, but my mom gets peppermint mocha and not peppermint mocha. How does it compare? Is it just the same or is it different? I also wanted to know if you can still get it at McDonald's. They have never had it on their menu, but we still get it there at times. I'd love to know how it compares to the drinks at Starbucks and McDonalds.

Does anyone know how the drink compares to Starbucks' peppermint mocha? Does it have more peppermint than Starbucks? I agree with Daphne - I love the drink, but I find it more minty than chocolatey. Married to a wonderful husband and father for over 20 years and a step-dad for over 10 years. Two wonderful step-daughters. And two fabulous step-grandchildren!
You may be able to find it at some restaurants (McDonald's for example) but it is only available for a limited time, I don't think they make it year round, which is a shame because it is a wonderful drink! I'm not sure about the differences between the two drinks, but I do know that my son would rather have the one with the peppermint than the other one. I did tell him that it was more like a "mocha" than a "hot chocolate" and he just loved that I remembered what it was called.
