Sweet Tooth Friday: Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son on December 1, 2011

Last week on Sweet Tooth Friday I shared my lastest addiction. Peppermint mocha muffins. It was a labor of love to get the recipe right, but I did.

But, I couldn’t just stop there, now could I? These muffins needed something to join them in the morning. Muffins aren’t breakfast alone, unless paired with coffee. Am I right?

Of course I am. Actually, any breakfast isn’t breakfast without coffee.

Taking my handy-dandy base for coffee creamer, I’ve added to my recipe collection which already includes Pumpkin Spice, Chocolate Almond and French Vanilla. Please welcome Peppermint Mocha coffee creamer. It’s like Starbucks, only easier.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ll still be enjoying Peppermint Mochas from Starbucks, I can’t go the season without one, or 10. But this is a great option when the craving strikes and I can’t leave the house. Or don’t want to, because it’s just too flipping cold outside.

By the way, it’s in the 30’s here, and if that’s already too cold, I’m in trouble once January comes around. I’ll have to keep plenty of this creamer on hand to make it through.

Hi there!

I am sharing my egg replacer / egg substitute recipe. It’s not sweet in and of itself, but I thought it would be really helpful for all the baking folks who read your site.

Hope that’s OK.

Take care,

I must have coffee each morning…and this would be the perfect thing for when it is super cold and I am craving Starbucks:-) Thank you so much!!!

Your creamer sounds lovely – and so nice to have a treat like that just waiting in the fridge! I’ve shared an easy slice and bake cookie recipe that can be made so many different ways, and you can even slice and bake the cookies from frozen. Thank you for sharing your recipe, and for hosting.


6 Allison @ Alli 'n Son December 7, 2011 at 10:22 pm

Your cookies sound perfect for Christmas!

That is genius! GENIUS! I tell you! You have just saved me $50. I love me some peppermint mocha from Starbucks, but I like cash in my wallet better. :-)


8 Aimee @ ShugarySweets December 2, 2011 at 6:11 am

Alli, I’ve been making your homemade creamer recipes for some time now. Yummy! Thanks for hosting!


9 Allison @ Alli 'n Son December 7, 2011 at 10:22 pm

You totally made my day Aimee!

So excited for this one! I just tried peppermint mocha this week and I really loved it! :)

Thanks for hosting :)


11 Christina December 2, 2011 at 7:58 am

Thanks for hosting! You rock the coffee world, this creamer sounds fabulous! Have a wonderful weekend!


12 Kitchen Belleicious December 2, 2011 at 8:00 am

Love the idea of a creamer and not just a mix for hot chocolate because sometimes you want your coffee to have a more christmas flavor! This looks and sounds delish!


13 Allison @ Alli 'n Son December 7, 2011 at 10:23 pm

Oh, I have a hot chocolate mix recipe too. Actually, I bet it would go great with this creamer. Now I have to try it.


14 Kitchen Belleicious December 2, 2011 at 8:00 am

Oh hey- if you get a chance stop by for a wonderful christmas giveaway on my site!


15 Stephanie Hill December 2, 2011 at 8:56 am

Oh yummm! I love peppermint mocha creamer in my coffee! I’m so excited to make my own! Thanks for sharing! :) I’m your newest follower, and I posted a couple of my sweet recipes. Thanks for hosting! Glad I found your blog!

YUM – I cannot wait to sit and browse through the links this week!! This is my first time sharing a link myself – easy cracker toffee. Thank you!


18 Allison @ Alli 'n Son December 7, 2011 at 10:27 pm

I love cracker toffee, it’s a must this time if the year. Thanks for joining this week.


19 Laura @ Gluten Free Pantry December 2, 2011 at 10:57 am

Yum-your recipe is making me drool! I shared my Chocolate Mint Brownie recipe this week. Thanks for hosting!


20 Allison @ Alli 'n Son December 7, 2011 at 10:27 pm

Chocolate and mint, two of my favorite things. Mmmmm, mmmm.


21 carolinaheartstrings December 2, 2011 at 3:07 pm

This looks just delicious. I love them at Starbucks and usually have as many as I can before they are gone for the season. Now I will make it at home too! Come visit us today. We have the most beautiful party dress to giveaway from The Shabby Apple.


22 Raina December 2, 2011 at 4:27 pm

This sounds so good. I am so in love with this flavor combo too:) Thanks for hosting the link party!


23 Lisa@BlessedwithGrace December 6, 2011 at 8:23 am

Oh I love this recipe!! Thanks for sharing it. Can’t wait to add it my coffee! :-)


24 Melinda December 6, 2011 at 8:46 am

My daughter sends her unending gratitude! She loves flavored creamers – but they don’t always fit in the budget! Now she can make her own. Thank you!


25 Allison @ Alli 'n Son December 7, 2011 at 10:28 pm

I hope she enjoys them! I must say, they are even better than store-bought. :)


26 Gaby @ Tmuffin December 6, 2011 at 4:05 pm

This is seriously weird. I have found your website through a bunch of different blog hops. Out of 100 people, I almost always click on your blog without even knowing it’s you!

Anyway, I am so excited to try this recipe. I’m obsessed with peppermint mochas and was about to splurge on some peppermint syrup from Starbucks because I couldn’t replicate this just with cocoa and peppermint extract. I’ll be trying this tomorrow if I have some extract in the cabinet!! (fingers crossed)


27 Allison @ Alli 'n Son December 7, 2011 at 10:29 pm

Too funny! I hope you enjoy the recipe, and I hope you stop by again soon.


28 Shiloh December 8, 2011 at 1:09 pm

This is great! My hubby loves this flavor. I’m going to make it for him, and he will be so happy!


29 Miz Helen December 9, 2011 at 9:47 am

What a great idea for a creamer, it looks yummy! Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday. Hope you are having a great week and come back soon!

It’s the height of summer here, but I still reckon I could go one of these – yum :-)


31 Gaby @ Tmuffin December 19, 2011 at 5:56 am

I made this. Yum! I didn’t make my own sweetened condensed milk, so I used one can of it and it was pretty sweet. I could have added more cocoa, too. But O.M.G. It tasted like the real thing. I linked up to it on my blog post this week. It’s that good! I’m actually drinking it iced now. Next I have to make the muffins…
