Cheap peppermint mocha

What is this? Two days ago it was over 80 degrees out and now there's snow on the ground! I'm still recovering from my sunburn and wearing a ski jacket! Crazy.

Anyway, the cold weather is a good excuse to enjoy my cheap, college-student-budget version of Starbucks' Peppermint Mocha. I like making my own because it's cheaper this way, I can control how sweet my drink is, and I can have it any time of the year because I have the ingredients in my kitchen!

I use instant coffee (I am aware there is much higher quality coffee to be had, but our coffee machine broke so I am stuck with instant), peppermint mocha creamer, and hot cocoa mix. I usually just combine these ingredients to taste so I won't give actual measurements here, but give it a try!


  1. Yum! I'll definitely give this a shot :) xoxo

  2. My hubby is a huge peppermint fan- will be sure to impress him with this one! Thanks for sharing x

  3. I've done something similar...I swear by this
