Peppermint Stick Hot Chocolate

Nuvita Biscuits

For an adults-only party, consider spiking this drink with mint liqueur, such as peppermint schnapps or crème de menthe.


  • 8 cups  reduced-fat milk
  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 12 candy canes
  • 3/4 cup miniature marshmallows
  • Whole grated nutmeg (optional)


Combine milk, brown sugar, cocoa, vanilla, nutmeg, and semisweet chocolate in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook 25 minutes or until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth, stirring occasionally. Serve with candy canes and marshmallows. Garnish with whole grated nutmeg, if desired.

    My friend and I are doing it, I weigh like 140 she is probably 150, and we’ll probably have a mikes hard lemonade or something like that too. Or hot chocolate with peppermint schnapps .Thanks. (We will be in Canada and the drinking age is 19 there. It is for my birthday so we are of age.) Thanks! Please no answers telling me not to do it!

    I drank a few sips of 100 proof peppermint schnapps today. It was my first taste of alcohol. The only problem is, it didn’t go so well. I didn’t throw up, but I did get kinda nauseous. Is there anything wrong with me? Why do I get queasy after just a few sips? I’m 17.
