Adding cookie crumbles to the rim of your glass isn’t necessary, but it sure does make this Thin Mint Latte more fun to drink, especially on a Monday.

I have to admit that I love living in Florida where we do not have winter storms anymore.
A few years ago when we lived in IN, we had a huge winter storm roll through and dump about 12 inches on our town. Those who live in the Midwest know that you shouldn’t rule out winter just because it’s March.
A homemade latte is the perfect way to stay warm from snow…or from having your air conditioner set really low. Yes, that’s the only chilly weather I am experiencing right now. LOL!
The good thing about making these coffee drinks at home is that I do not have to go anywhere. Yay for not having to get ready to go out for the day. Plus, not spending $5 on one drink is always a good reason to keep making them at home.
With a certain cookie season in full swing, I decided to add those flavors to a homemade latte recipe. Chocolate and mint add such a great flavor to a cup of coffee.
After the third cup, I decided to have fun with the presentation. A cup of coffee with cookie crumbles on the rim and on top, plus Cool Whip and chocolate drizzles looks and tastes pretty amazing.
I also did a mug with a rim of green sugar.
The cookie crumbs or green sugar is totally optional, but I think you should totally try it.
Why? 1. Because it is so fun! 2. It makes the homemade latte taste so much better!
A Thin Mint latte with a rim of green sugar or cookies definitely needs to happen in your life. I loved both, but the rim of cookie was my favorite.
Dip the top of the glass in honey, then dip the rim in crushed cookies.
How to make a Homemade Latte:
Make a cup of strong coffee and pour it into a measuring cup.
Then heat the milk, syrup, and extract on the stove on low to medium heat until it is hot.
Pulse the hot milk until you get a nice layer of foam on top. You can also pulse the milk in a blender to make it frothy.
Tips for pouring a Thin Mint Latte:
When you are making a drink with a fun dipped rim you need to have the frothed milk and coffee in a container that can pour easily. The first one I poured the coffee in from a regular coffee cup, and the coffee went all over the sides of my cup. Bye, bye fun rim of cookie!
An angled measuring cups works great for pouring the coffee and frothed milk into the mug without spilling it on the rim.
As you are pouring, use the back of a spoon to keep all the foam from going into the cup if it is smaller. If your mug is large, then you can pour everything in right away.
Now if I were you, I would go find a box of Thin Mints. Crumble 1 cookie to dip your coffee cup in, then enjoy a few more while you sip your Thin Mint Latte.
I’m confident that you will be making this one over and over again. How do I know? Because I had 4 in 4 days…yup, they are that good.
