Peppermint White Chocolate Hot Cocoa

What a great drink to have in your hands while curled up in front of your fire place or next to your Christmas tree. It’s a delicious hot cocoa that’s made with peppermint kisses and white chocolate!

I hope it’s hot cocoa weather where you are because it’s 80s here! Yes, you saw this right…80s!! It’s awful…I want winter!

At least the weekend after Thanksgiving, it was nice and chilly. By “chilly” I mean 60s. I made some cocoa for kids and they love it so much! I wanted to make something new for them instead of the same old cocoa. Baby girl was visiting and she loves peppermint. I proposed a peppermint, white chocolate hot cocoa and got a “jumping yay!”

  4. Looks so yummy! I could take one right now! It is so cold here!

  5. I’m soooooooo gonna try this as soon as it cools off in Georgia again. Wish I’d found this recipe last week when it was in the 20s. Today it was 74!! 20s come baaaack! LOL

  6. Love this idea!

  7. This looks awesome! But I am a little confused – you have adding the chocolate chips at two points in the recipe. Am I supposed to divide the chips in half, or only add them at the end, or what?

    Thanks for getting me cleared up!

    • Patricia..was this ever answered? I am confused to on the ‘chips’.

      • I’m sorry, Patricia and Sandi for getting back to you so late! It certainly IS a misprint and I fixed it!

  8. We have had a cocoa tradition in our family for 23 years. Every night at 9pm it’s “cocoa time”. When my daughter was small we would enjoy it while she was in bed but she’s all grown up now and enjoys it with us. This recipe is gonna spice things up for us! Thanks for sharing!

  9. YUMM-O, girl!

  10. Yum! What a great combination of flavors! I’m featuring it today on my blog!

  11. Love this idea! It sounds so yummy!

  12. Oh, my that sounds good. I wish I had a big mug of that as I sit here at my computer!!!

  13. Yummy!! Hot cocoa is so nice to have this time of year – love the addition of peppermint!

  14. I made this for the Christmas Holiday. I could not find the Hershery’s Peppermint kisses. I used Wilton’s Candy Melts in Peppermint. The Cocca turn out great. I did find Hershery’s Mint Truffles and Made Dark Chocolate Cocca also and both were very delicious.

    • Ooo, I didn’t know they had peppermint melts! Great thinking ;)
      Thank you so much, Jewel! So glad you liked it!

    So loving this as I have a caffeine allergy! No chocolate or coffee for me!

    My must have drink for winter has been Hot Spicy Apple Cider but I think it’s gonna be replaced! I’ve often thought about using white chocolate but wasn’t sure how that would work out!

    Thanks for the remedy!

    Now if my wife will fix some tea cakes I’ll be a happy camper!!! :-)
