Easy Mocha Latte

Whip up this simple at-home latte in minutes with just a few easy pantry ingredients.


oz hot brewed strong coffee
tbsp hot chocolate mix
cup whole milk
Optional: whipped cream, additional hot chocolate mix for dusting, candy cane


  • 1 Stir together the coffee and hot chocolate mix in a large mug.
  • 2 Heat the milk on the stove to warm -- it should be around 100 degrees or just hot enough that you can only keep a finger in it comfortably for a couple of seconds. Remove from the stove and froth the milk using an aerator. Alternatively, whisk vigorously by hand until the milk foams, about 1 minute.
  • 3 Pour the frothed milk into the coffee. If desired, garnish with whipped cream and a dusting of hot chocolate mix.
  • 4 For a peppermint mocha, stir the coffee with a candy cane.

As prepared by S Caron,

Give up your favorite coffeehouse mocha to save some moolah? *gasp!*

Don't panic! With this easy recipe for Mocha Latte, you can do it easily.

Forget about the beaucoup-bucks mocha you fell in love with at your favorite neighborhood coffee place. It’s just not budget friendly. But this one? You can make it for pennies at home in 5 minutes. Cool, or what?!

You only need 3 ingredients – strong hot coffee, hot chocolate mix and whole milk.

Ingredients for Mocha Latte

Of course, if you want to fancy it up a bit, you could add some whipped cream too. Or stir it with a candy cane (peppermint mocha latte!). But that’s up to you.

So, to start, add the hot chocolate mix to the strong, hot coffee.

Adding Cocoa Mix to Hot Coffee

Stir it up well. Be sure to really get in there and mix it around so that it’s really well combined.

Then heat up the milk on the stove. If you have one of those fancy little aerators for making foamed milk, use it. Otherwise, grab your smallest whisk and whisk the milk like crazy for a minute or so until it’s good and foamy. Then pour that foamed milk into the coffee.
