I love the combination of chocolate and peppermint. I’m all about the pumpkin flavors until Christmas time and then I’m all about the peppermint flavor!

How To Make Candy Cane Hot Cocoa

Combine the heavy cream, peppermint creamer, milk, and salt in a medium saucepan. Place the saucepan over medium heat.

Heat up the milk, stirring occasionally. Scrap the bottom of the pan with a rubber spatula so the milk doesn’t scorch. Bring it to a simmer.

Add the chocolate chips and whisk together until the chocolate has melted. Then add the peppermint extract and stir to combine.

Serve the hot chocolate warm and top with whipped cream and crushed candy canes. Add a candy cane stirring stick to each one.
