Try the Peppermint Patty drink: a genius combination of hot chocolate, mint and chocolate liqueurs! This cozy mug has your name on it.


  • 6 ounces (3/4 cup) hot chocolate*
  • 1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) Creme de Cacao
  • 1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) 30 proof or 60 proof** peppermint schnapps
  • For the garnish: Whipped cream, crushed peppermint candies (optional)


  1. Make the homemade hot chocolate (or make it using purchased cocoa mix*).
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a mug. Top with whipped cream and crushed peppermint candies, if desired.


*Try this with homemade hot chocolate, healthy hot chocolate or vegan hot chocolate. If using purchased hot chocolate mix, you may want to use whole milk or stir in a bit of half and half or cream to add richness.

**Check the bottle before you make this drink! If using 100 proof (50% ABV) schnapps, skip the 1 1/2 ounces and just add a drizzle to taste.
