How do you satisfy your coffeehouse cravings?
I love coffee. No, I’m obsessed with coffee! I could happily live in my favorite coffee shop if it wasn’t so expensive. Plus, I’m a work at home mom and there will be times when I don’t leave my house for three or four days in a row. So to save time and money, I like to blend up my favorite coffeehouse drinks at home. Right now this Chocolate Mint Frappe recipe has been my go-to.
To get the mint chocolate flavor into this frappe recipe, I chopped up some yummy creme de menthe chocolate candy. The frappe gets a delightful flavor without being too sweet.
Home Chef Tip:
The secret to having a frappe that won’t get watered down is to use coffee ice cubes. I always freeze the leftovers from my morning pot of coffee to have coffee ice cubes on hand. Then to make my frappes, all I have to do is add some cubes to my blender, top with milk, and add whatever flavor I’m craving at the time.
After blending the chocolate mint frappe, I like to add chocolate syrup around the sides of my serving glass and top with whipped cream and a drizzle more chocolate syrup. My frappe ends up being coffeehouse perfect.
To make this budget-friendly drink extra special, I also like to garnish my chocolate mint frappe with what inspired this recipe in the first place – a mint chocolate cookie. Yum!
