Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Fall is one of my favourite times of the year. I love laying on the couch, wrapped in a blanket and sipping hot chocolate. Add whipped cream and peppermint and I am in hot chocolate heaven.

Camino is one of my favourite brands of chocolate powder and chocolate bars. They are a Canadian brand of fair trade and organic food products owned by the Ottawa based La Siembra coop. I was given some Camino products at Blogcation so I decided to create a KickAss Peppermint Hot Chocolate to drink on a cold and rainy December night.

Peppermint hot chocolate


1. Make hot chocolate as per instructions. I always use milk as I love a rich hot chocolate.

2.  I use a peppermint stir stick to add the peppermint flavour. You can also add a piece of peppermint flavoured chocolate to your mixture or peppermint candies.

3.  Lots of whipped topping. That adds an extra dose of indulgence.

4. Sprinkle shaved chocolate on top. I used a Camino Dark Chocolate Mint bar.

For an adult version, you can also add a shot of Kahlua Peppermint liqueur.

    Hi Ann,

    This is my first visit to your blog but when I saw this post title I had to check it out.

    I LOVE hot chocolate and of course peppermint too. I bet that’s a great combination and I’m definitely going to be trying this one out. I have a hot chocolate mix already that I love so now I just need to add the peppermint flavor.

    Thank you for sharing this one with us and I’ll be sure to share this post on social media as well.

    Have a great week.

    I love camino hot chocolate, it’s my favourite one on the market. So much better than the regular sugar-loaded brands, I think. The Camino regular milk choc is good, but I love the dark one. I never thought of adding a peppermint stick, what a great idea!
    My first visit here, love your blog!
