  • Slow Cooker


  • 1 14 oz. can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • cup Granulated Sugar
  • 11 oz. Milk Chocolate Chips
  • teaspoon Salt
  • 2 teaspoon Peppermint Extract
  • 8 cups Whole Milk

For serving:

  • 2 cups Peppermint Schnapps divided
  • Miniature Marshmallows
  • Whipped Cream
  • Andes Chopped Peppermint Baking Chips


  • Turn the slow cooker on low. Add in the sweetened condensed milk with the milk chocolate chips, cocoa powder, granulated sugar, salt, and peppermint extract.
  • Mix until the chocolate chips are melted, then add in the milk. Stir until mostly incorporated and the milk is a light brown color.
  • Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for 1.5 hours.
  • Mix a few times during the cooking process to make sure the chocolate chips are fully melted and incorporated into the dairy mixture.
  • Once hot, mix well and ladle peppermint hot cocoa into cups. Add 1-2 ounces peppermint schnapps to each adult mug.
  • Garnish with a layer of mini marshmallows, whipped cream and chopped Andes chopped peppermint baking chips on top.


  • If children are not enjoying the hot chocolate you can add the peppermint schnapps directly to the slow cooker.
  • For a less sweeter cocoa leave out the granulated sugar.
