Easy Peppermint Hot Chocolate

This Easy Peppermint Hot Chocolate only requires two ingredients: chocolate milk and peppermint flavor. If you want to get fancy, add a dollop of whipped cream and some chocolate shavings on top. But, this is by far the easiest and tastiest hot cocoa you'll ever have!

If you love hot chocolate as much as I do, be sure to check out some of my other favorite recipes like my Dark Hot Chocolate, Boozy Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate, or my Easy Hot Chocolate Bombs.

This Easy Peppermint Hot Chocolate recipe has just two ingredients! Yes, just two ingredients. My shortcut for making a really easy hot chocolate is just warming up chocolate milk. I used to do this all the time when I worked at a bakery/coffee shop. I would bring shelf stable Organic Valley Chocolate Milks into the shop, and then also my own Organic Peppermint Flavor. This way, I could easy drop those two ingredients into my lunch bag and be able to make a warm and cozy drink for my break. All I had to do was steam up my milk and drop a little bit of peppermint flavor in and I had my own Organic Peppermint Hot Chocolate in no time!

So, this recipe for Easy Peppermint Hot Chocolate is just that simple! You only need two ingredients, but if you want to fancy it up with some Homemade Whipped Cream or chocolate shavings, you can do that as well. When the drink itself is so easy to make, then you can take those few extra minutes and whip up some Homemade Whipped Cream.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

In a small saucepan, heat the milk and peppermint flavor until it reaches 140°F on a drink thermometer. Remove from heat and serve immediately.


Can I use peppermint extract?

Yes, but extract is stronger than flavor, so you'd need just like a drop. It may be difficult to get it right and may be too flavorful. That's why I use peppermint flavor here.

Can I make this vegan?

Yes, just use your favorite vegan chocolate milk!
