Copycat “Oldie” Starbucks Café Mocha


Years and years ago this hot drink was one of Starbucks original specialty drinks on their menu. All these years later, it’s still very popular even though they added so many more snazzy hot and cold drinks. The names alone are snazzy.  So many to choose from! This is still my favorite. We make it at home a lot. The combo of coffee and chocolate is so perfect. One complements the other.  On top of all that, making it at home saves a nice amount of money. You know how expensive it can run just for one hot drink. Try this simple to make recipe. It’s a winner!
