This recipe calls for Bailey’s Irish Cream, however, you can omit that if you like. If you choose that option, and you want a hint of sweetness (which the Bailey’s does give), then you’ll need to add your sweetener of choice.

How to Make Mocha Coffee
Mocha is insanely popular. And, it’s basically, at its most simple core, a mixture of espresso, milk and chocolate.
Yes, that’s basically what we have in this drink, too.
Mocha Coffee Recipe
This mocha coffee recipe has the smooth creamy taste of Bailey’s Irish Cream. Then you have the intense flavors of the coffee concentrate. Added in is a concentration of cacao powder. And, finally the sweet taste of whipped cream.
Coffee with Chocolate Powder
You could even simplify this drink by just using the coffee concentrate, boiling hot water and cacao or chocolate powder. If you want it to have sweetness, then add your choice of sugar or a sugar substitute. Or you can even drizzle in a little sweetened condensed milk to have the sweet with the milky creaminess. Another option is to just melt some of the peppermint candy cane in the coffee/cacao and you’ve got that hint of sweet.
Baileys and Coffee Recipe
Bailey’s and coffee is a go together for many.
And, it certainly does expand the dimensions of flavor in this drink.
It’s your choice to decide the size of the drinks. I wanted to create just sips, so I used small shot like stem glasses that hold about four ounces.
There’s the coffee mixture and a couple of teaspoons of whipped cream. Add a small peppermint candy cane. Let it melt somewhat in the mixture, and you have a delightful sipping drink. It’s perfect for after dinner!
This easy mocha peppermint coffee is the perfect drink for many occasions. Rather than serve as a full drink of say eight ounces, I believe just a sip and hint of the sweet nectar excites and satisfies!
