Adding Flavors to your Andes Mint Mocha
It’s easy to change up your Andes Mint Mocha for a slightly different flavor for a change of pace. Sprinkling ground cinnamon or nutmeg on the whipped cream or mixing it into the drink itself makes a sensational change. If you would like to take your drink a little further south of the border, add a bit of chili powder to the mix. Aztecs mixed chili in with their chocolate for an amazingly spicy and smooth blend. You can also use other flavors of Andes candies Cherry Chocolate will be a great blend with coffee, giving you a tangy sweetness. Toffee would also be a fantastic choice for a buttery coffee that tastes like you just stepped out of the coffeehouse.
