    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1/4 cup heat stable sugar substitute, equal to 1/4 cup sugar or 1/4 cup sugar
    • 10 striped round peppermint candies, finely crushed
    • 6 cups nonfat milk


    1. 1
      In a large saucepan stir together the cocoa powder, sugar substitute or sugar, crushed candies, and 3/4 cup of the milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture just comes to boiling. Stir in the remaining milk; heat through. Do not boil. Remove from heat. If desired, beat with a rotary beater until frothy.
    2. 2
      Mocha Cooler: Prepare as above, except omit the peppermint candies; increase the heat stable sugar substitute to equal 1/3 cup sugar or increase the sugar to 1/3 cup. Add 2-3 teaspoons instant coffee crystals with the 3/4 cup milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture just comes to boiling. Remove from heat; stir in the remaining milk. Serve immediately over ice. (Or, cover and chill. Stir before serving over ice).

      This is a wonderful recipe. I used candy canes instead of round peppermint candies to downsize what I had left over from Christmas. Perfect. Very minty and easy. Thanks for sharing internetnut. I made this for Comfort Cafe January 2010.
