This tasty holiday drink is spiked with peppermint schnapps for an extra kick of flavor, but can easily be made into a fun holiday mocktail! 




12 tbsp chocolate sauce/syrup

2 oz freshly brewed espresso or strong coffee

12 oz peppermint schnapps

.5-1 oz coffee creamer or milk of choice

Crushed ice

Whip cream

Crushed candy canes


  1. In a glass pour chocolate sauce or chocolate syrup in the bottom. Add hot espresso or coffee to the chocolate sauce and stir until the two have melted together
  2. Add in peppermint schnapps and creamer. Fill the remaining glass with crushed ice and top with a generous layer of whip cream, a drizzle of chocolate sauce and crushed candy canes for topping.
