Starbucks Peppermint Mocha Coffee (Copycat Recipe)

I LOVE the Starbucks Peppermint Mocha!
 
When I can't get to Starbucks, I make this copycat version at home.   I enjoy serving this to my friends and relatives during the holidays.
 
A large bottle of peppermint syrup contains about 66 tablespoons and costs around $8.00
You can make a lotta latte's with that $8.00 bottle! 
 
I often find the peppermint syrup at Target.  If not, my local Starbucks will usually sell me a bottle.

Ingredients:
3 tablespoons powdered baking cocoa 
3 tablespoons warm water 
2 tablespoons Starbucks peppermint syrup
4 ounces of espresso or very strong coffee
12 ounces steamed milk (you can use warm milk if you don't have a steamer)
Whipped cream
Red Sugar Sprinkles
Hershey's Syrup Special Dark

*You can change this recipe using more or less syrup and change the coffee to milk ratio to suit your tastes.

 Directions:
(1) In a 16 ounce mug, combine the baking cocoa and warm water.  Stir it together into a syrup.
(2) Add the espresso and stir well again.
(3) Add the peppermint syrup and stir.
(4) Steam or warm your milk and add it to the top of the cup and stir.
(5) Top with whipped cream, a drizzle of chocolate syrup and red sugar crystals.

My favorite inexpensive way to make strong coffee is to use a French Press using these directions http://www.christineiscooking.com/2011/10/how-to-make-perfect-coffee-in-french.html
