*Note: substitution options can be found above in the substitution section of this post.Can I use mint or spearmint instead of peppermint. Unfortunately, no, I mean yes you can because people you can do anything you want but it will affect the flavor. Each type has a different flavor profile and the profile associated with holidays is peppermint. Dan is very particular about this…Can I use chocolate chips? Yes! Melt them in a microwave safe bowl for 30 second interval to melt. Slowly add to the coffee mixture, along with peppermint, and stir to combine. Proceed with the milk Frothing to combine milk and any other add ins you have.Does the percentage chocolate matter? Yes for health reasons. Flavor wise, as medium to dark chocolate powder could be used.What if I don’t have maple syrup? Not a problem, you can use honey or sweetener of choice. Just be aware that depending on the sweetener, the recipe may have processed sugar and granular sugar will likely sink to the bottom some cause it you to miss out of the full flavor. Fun add ins to try: (optional ingredients)
Cocoa Butter: creates a creamy texture (like butter) and melts at low temperatures
Collagen: adds protein without affecting flavor
Maca Powder: adds a nutty texture (really good in hazelnut drinks and recipes), sometimes can become gritty and overpowering if too much is used. Only used a tiny bit and add more as needed.
Sprinkles and coconut whip cream, because why not?!
