Place your mini chocolate chips and the vanilla in the bottom of your mug.
Pour your brewed coffee over the chips and stir until chocolate is melted and cohesive in your mug.
Add 1-2 drops of red food coloring to your milk. Heat your milk and froth until your milk doubles in volume. Using a large spoon, hold the foam back, while you pour the milk into the mocha mixture, spooning the foam onto the top to finish off your drink.
Sprinkle with sanding sugar, jimmies, hearts…whatever is desired.
*** To make this cold, mix the milk with the mocha mixture, holding back the foam. Pour over ice, and add the foam on top of the iced latte.***
