One of my favorite things about winter is hot chocolate (with piles of marshmallows!). A close runner-up to hot chocolate is the Starbucks winter classic, Peppermint Mocha.

So naturally, when I found a delicious recipe that combined two of my favorite warm beverages, I had to try it! Here is the recipe below, I hope you all will enjoy!

What You Will Need:

  • 1 quart of milk
  • Three crushed peppermint sticks
  • Half a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • A third of a cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Marshmallows!


  • Place the unsweetened cocoa in a medium saucepan and whisk in milk until all of the cocoa has dissolved.
  • Add the chocolate chips and crushed peppermint to the mixture.
  • Let the mixture simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Ensure that the peppermint and chocolate chips have dissolved properly.
  • Serve in mugs of your choice.
  • Top off each mug with marshmallows.
