12 Days of Mochas: Day 10 Dark Chocolate Mint Mocha

Today's mocha is a bit different than the others I featured in the 12 Days of Mochas series.  This mocha is made with hot chocolate mix.  The coffee mixed with hot cocoa tones down the sweetness.  I used dark chocolate hot cocoa, which isn't very sweet in the first place, but creates a nice balance when the mint extract is added.  It's like an Andes Candy warm hug in a mug.

Dark Chocolate Mint Mocha Latte


2/3 C. Frothed milk
¾ C. Fresh brewed Coffee
2 Tbsp. Dark chocolate hot cocoa mix
¼ - ½ tsp. Mint extract
Whipped Cream (optional)
Andes Candy bits


Froth milk in 2-quart sauce pan over medium heat; careful not to boil.  When milk is foamy pour into a large mug.  Add coffee and cocoa mix to the mug; stir.  Stir in mint extract. Top with whipped cream and Andes Candy bits.

Yields: 1 Serving; 1 mug


  • The amount of mint you add is up to your personal taste. But be careful because the mint can get overpowering.  Start with the smaller 1/4 teaspoon first.  Then add a little more at a time until you reach the taste you like.
  • You could use milk chocolate in place of the dark chocolate.
