From betty crocker. I have a serious love of mint and chocolate together! This is is so good!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 14 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 6 cups milk
  • 3 cups white vanilla baking chips
  • 12 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • candy canes or crushed hard peppermint candy, if desired

Directions

  1. In chilled small bowl, mix whipping cream, powdered sugar, cocoa and 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.
  2. In 2-quart saucepan, heat milk just to simmering over medium-low heat - do not boil. Reduce heat to low. Add baking chips; stir constantly with wire whisk until melted and smooth. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract.
  3. Pour hot chocolate into cups or mugs. Top each serving with whipped cream. Garnish with candy cane for stirring, or sprinkle with crushed candies

  6. VARIATION:.
  7. Use 1/3 cup peppermint schnapps for the 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract in the hot chocolate to make a delicious adult drink.
