White Chocolate Peppermint Latte Recipe

This white chocolate peppermint latte is little like Christmas in a mug! Quite similar to my peppermint mochoa latte recipe, this recipe is perfect for those who don't like cocoa or just want to try something different. The white chocolate is smooth and creamy, while the peppermint is cool and refreshing. This recipe is just for one latte, but it can easily be doubled for two at a time.


1/2 cup milk or soy milk
1/4 cup white chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate bar
1 tsp peppermint extract
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 ounces espresso or strongly brewed coffee


Begin by combining the milk and white chocolate in a double boiler or a glass bowl atop a pot of boiling water (which is what I did). It is possible to just combine them in a pot, but you risk scorching the milk.

Whisk the mixture until the white chocolate is completely melted. This could take ten minutes or so. While white chocolate is melting on the stove, prepare your strong coffee or espresso.

When the white chocolate has melted into the milk, add the vanilla and peppermint extracts. Continue to whisk periodically until coffee has brewed.

Pour your white chocolate syrup into a mug, and then add coffee. Top with whipped cream and crushed candy canes if you wish!
