This is delicious. I have found by experience that using a strong good-quality cocoa is best when you want to add other flavors to your cocoa. And don't try to go low-fat. :) Yummy.
I made a batch of Ultra-Rich Hot Chocolate, and then added the peppermint schnapps. Great adult hot hot chocolate...what can I say? Made for a blissful night's sleep.
What a treat! I just used an individual packet of hot chocolate mix & it still tasted decadent!! The ratio of cocoa to schnapps was perfect - couldn't taste the alcohol at all (a little dangerous, I guess). I had one before bed & slept soundly!!
Now that tasted naughty! The schnapps added a lovely accent rather than overpowered the chocolate. A perfect nightcap for anybody that enjoys chocolate mint. Oh and cream isn't optional in this house.
I had this a night cap last night using some pink peppermint liqueur I had & choc-malt hot chocolate, in a large mug the peppermint is very subtle & complements the hot chocolate perfectly. I can see me making this often. Thanks!
I used Ice 101 Peppermint Schnapps and am loving my little cocoa right now. We are fast becoming really good friends. Peppermint and chocolate are one of the perfect matches!
Wonderful! I reduced the peppermint schnapps to 1/2 oz and used Godiva Dark Chocolate Truffle Cocoa which proved to be a decadent combination. Thanks so much, Mama's Kitchen!
This is very good. Nice and soothing. I used 1 1/4 ounces of the schnapps and it was just right. So easy to make. Thanks for a great recipe Mama.
We call this drink a peppermintg pattie.
