These Peppermint Patty drinks are the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day (or any day!) with your honey.
Valentine’s Day is only a couple of days away. Do you go all out and celebrate? Or do you stay home and have a fancier dinner than usual? Either way, these Peppermint Patty drinks are the perfect “after dinner mint” and they are super easy to make!
Word of caution: These drinks do contain alcohol. I would not recommend serving the standard recipe to anyone under the age of 21.
However, you can easily replicate these as a non-alcoholic drink! So, kids and non-drinkers can have some too!
I’ve added the substitution suggestions to each recipe, so feel free to switch it up however you like, you’ll still love the final outcome, I promise!
Here’s the recipes…
Hot Peppermint Patty Drink

- 1 pkg. hot cocoa mix
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 ounce creme de cacao schnapps, or 1 teaspoon chocolate flavored syrup

- Boil the water on the stove or in the microwave.
- Pour the water in to a mug, add the hot cocoa mix and stir until dissolved.
- Pour the milk into the hot cocoa and then add the creme de cacao and peppermint schnapps (or chocolate flavored syrup and peppermint extract).
