Chocolate Mint Cappuccino
- ½ cup milk
- 1 to 2 teaspoons peppermint flavored syrup
- 2 tablespoons Smucker’s® Sundae Syrup™ Chocolate Flavored Syrup
- ¼ cup hot, fresh strong brewed Folgers® French Roast Coffee or ¼ cup hot, fresh strong brewed Folgers® Black Silk Coffee
- Unsweetened cocoa powder or chocolate curls, for garnish
- Pour milk into 1-quart microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1-1 ½ minutes or until hot but not boiling. Beat hot milk with electric mixer, increasing speed as milk begins to thicken. Continue beating until foam doubles. Steamed milk will settle to the bottom. Foamed milk will rise to the top.
- Pour peppermint and chocolate syrups into standard-size coffee cup. Microwave on high 20 seconds to warm syrups. Stir in hot coffee.
