Dessert + booze = heaven. This Peppermint Patty by Divine Caroline is liquid decadence in a glass, and it’s ridiculously easy to make. Heat milk on the stovetop (or if you’re really feeling indulgently lazy, the microwave!), then add your favorite hot cocoa powder (tip: you cannot go wrong with Ghirardelli). Spike the hot chocolate with a shot of peppermint schnapps like Rumple Minze, or if that’s not on hand in the liquor cabinet, Crème de menthe is a yummy alternative. Top with a swirl of whipped cream, a sprinkling of peppermint crumbs and ta-da! You’ve got a tasty tipple perfect for toasting the season.
