1 quart milk (skim, 2 percent or whole) or half-and-half
6 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
9 ounces peppermint schnapps
This is an excellent hot cocoa recipe on its own, without alcohol. But the peppermint schnapps adds an extra kick. Hang mini candy canes on the rim of the cup for a holiday garnish that doubles as a swizzle stick. Serve topped with whipped cream.
