Stuff We Love: Peppermint Hot Chocolate

There is nothing quite like a hot mug of peppermint cocoa on a cold snap of a day to get me in the holiday spirit. It is by far, my favorite holiday drink. Ok maybe egg nog is right up there….but honestly who can drink more than a few sips of that stuff. So it’s peppermint cocoa by default. A hot mug of that and I’m ready to get back to editing.

Which is what I’m about to do now! Ilana & Lee Pt II coming your way soon!

Peppermintily Yours,

So go ahead….tell me *your* favorite holiday drink & I’ll be sending out a tin of this Williams Sonoma peppermint cocoa to one lucky commenter!

  1. Meredith

    I just discovered my favorite holiday/winter drink this weekend: White Hot Chocolate! It is the happiest thing I’ve ever tasted, and reminds me of a warm milkshake. Mmm!

  2. Jessica

    Soy Caramel Brulee latte at Starbucks…best ever!

  3. Jewel

    That looks amazing!

    My favorite right now is hot Zhena’s Gypsy Coconut Chai Tea. It comes in a pretty tin and is delicious with a little Agave Syrup!

  4. Julia R

    I would have to go with a tie between hot spiced cider and mulled wine. Yum!

  5. Alicia Kleppinger

    Dulce De Leche coffee with a splash of Kahlua and whipped cream! Yum!

  6. Beth

    hot buttered rum!

  7. Lydia

    Pumpkin Spice lattes take the top spot with peppermint hot chocolate not far behind! So yum!

  8. Michelle

    I am loving the salted caramel hot chocolate from Starbucks this season! Yummmm.

  9. Lauren Wakefield

    Pumpkin Spice Hot Cocoa. Which comes in a Charlie Brown Tin. It doesn’t get much better than that. :)

  10. Ravyn

    Hands down: homemade hot chocolate. It’s rich and warm and super tasty. Maybe add a little Baileys and you’ve got yourself the perfect holiday drink.

  11. Molly Kate

    I know it sound crazy for the cold, but Frozen Hot Chocolates from Serendipity in NYC … especially the chocolate/peanutbutter!!!

  12. Chelsea McGowan

    Starbucks Peppermint Mocha! Oh man, yum.

  13. Jessica Frey

    We have the same taste in cocoa…I crave this W&S peppermint yumminess every year! Just asked the sales lady if my can from last year is still good since I bought like 4 and only ended up using 3 1/2 last winter :) YUM!!!

  14. Dennis Bullock

    Starbucks Peppermint Mocha all the way!

  15. Michelle

    I just had some plain hot cocoa, wishing it were pepperminty. I have a new favorite drink though…the Spicy Dark Chocolate Mocha at Caribou coffee (I know, I know it’s not Starbucks, but dont hate *wink*) It is the perfect combination of rich chocolate and a little kick.

  16. Tiffany

    My favorite drink of the holiday definitely has to be Starbuck’s Caramel Apple Cider…It is to. die. for!

    Love your work! Very inspirational!

  17. Kristin

    My grandmother-in-law’s wassail!

    Cinnamint Hot Tea… I know some places that serve it but only during the winter. So warm and yummy. :)

  27. Brandi

    I am with you.. hot chocolate, especially with peppermint is delicious. Egg Nog makes me a little nauseous. Also, I like booze for the holidays. :) Except this holiday, since I am preggers.. it’s a booze free kind of holiday.
