This is one of my husband's favorite winter drinks. I love the minty, chocolaty recipe because it's like Christmas in a cup. Be sure to use fresh mint leaves and don't skimp on the chocolate or whipped cream either! —Alyssa Ponticello, Brooklyn, New York

TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min.
MAKES: 4 servings


  • 8 fresh mint leaves
  • 1 ounce dark baking chocolate, melted
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 4 cups 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 teaspoons minced fresh mint (about 16 leaves)
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Brush both sides of mint leaves with melted chocolate. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet; refrigerate until set.
  2. In a small bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add sugar and extract; beat until soft peaks form. Refrigerate until serving.
  3. In a large saucepan, heat milk and cream over medium heat just to simmering (do not boil). Remove from heat; add mint. Whisk in chocolate chips until melted; return to heat and heat through.
  4. If desired, pour hot chocolate through a strainer to remove mint leaves. Top servings with whipped cream and chocolate leaves. Yield: 4 servings.
