The Facebook alert on my phone lit up about 11 pm EST. I had been tagged in a friend’s festive photograph – taken over 2500 miles apart – of a Hiram Walker Peppermint Schnapps nip before his indulging in a peppermint hot chocolate.
And so my yearning began! After all, it is the season for peppermint schnapps and hot chocolate to join together for a delicious, warming treat. So for Friday’s Featured Cocktail to last you through the weekend, I thought I’d share a hot chocolate recipe easy to please the masses – The Breath Mint Hot Chocolate!
- ¾ part Hiram Walker Peppermint Schnapps
- ¾ part Kahlúa
- 4 parts Hot Chocolate
Combine ingredients and serve in a coffee mug. Top with optional garnishes of fresh whipped cream, chocolate shavings, or peppermint candies.
Yup, it doesn’t get much simpler – nor tastier on a cold winter’s weekend – than that. But if you have other tasty variations, please feel free to share your recipes or links in the comments section and I’d be happy to share them in a future post!
Have a fantastic weekend!
