Homemade Starbucks Drinks (Pumpkin Spice Latte, Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate & Peppermint Mocha)

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

Aside from shorter days and crisp evenings, another sign that the Holidays are just around the corner are the red cups that only come once a year. Yes, you know the ones. Covered in snowflakes and ice skaters, they are as iconic as the big red man himself. Well, kinda….

The Holidays are a season for feasting, sharing and indulgence. It’s a time for eating, drinking and being merry. Nothing warms the soul more than warm drinks on a cold Fall night.

Starbucks have nailed it with their Holiday-inspired drinks including crazy combinations that scream the holidays; they are comfort in a 12oz cup. Whether you partake or not, few can resist these delicious drinks. However, now you can make your own Homemade Starbucks Drinks rather then making a trip to your local store. Let’s not forget the added bonus of knowing what goes into them, and it isn’t squirts of peppermint sugar syrup.

These recipes multiply really well so if you are having friends over make up a big pot and serve it hot with whipped cream on top. These drinks are so satisfying and decadent, they would almost replace dessert.  Only joking, nothing replaces dessert!

Pumpkin Spice Latte

Possibly the most popular Starbucks drink for the Holidays, Pumpkin Spice Latte has the caffeine we crave with the kick of spice we love. And of course the whipped cream on top doesn’t hurt. Find the Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe here.

Peppermint Mocha 

Chocolate loves to be paired with certain ingredients that really makes its flavor pop: coffee and peppermint happen to be some of those flavors. I can see why this is one of the most popular Starbucks drinks for the Holidays. Find the Peppermint Mocha recipe here.

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate is my go-to Starbucks drink. With even more Salted Caramel on top, it just pushes this drink over the edge to heaven! Find the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate recipe here.

      Hi there, if you are in college, I presume it is a catering college! My college had lots of options, and I started doing a culinary arts degree, then decided it was not for me, and changed to Professional Cookery (chef) course. You need to have this behind you if you are going to be a professional chef, and be taken seriously in the business. Then it is about working in the best possible kitchens to perfect your cooking, and to choose your specialty. There is no easy way, it is a long road to where I am, I have been at it for 15 years or so! Keep your head down and work hard 🙂
