Rated 5 out of 5 by KimV from De-licious! I made this last night for myself and my two children. It was so good I don't think I'll ever go back to pre-packaged hot chocolate again! I did it on the "soup" setting on my Vitamix and it was perfect - not burning hot, which was good for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MichelD from Delicious! Minutes to make, so delicious! Made a lactose free version using almond milk and coconut whipped cream. Also uses peppermint candies instead of sticks (estimated 30 candies = 6 sticks).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eboni from Yummy I followed this recipe, except I didn't blend peppermint sticks. Instead, I poured the hot chocolate over a had full of mini peppermint flavored marshmallows, stirred it up in my daughter's mug, and it was absolutely delicious!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FranandOllie from Amazing and better than a coffee shop!! Not a huge fan of peppermint, but decided to try without and make keto-friendly. It is superb! Used 1 cup heavy whipping cream, 1 cup unsweetened macadamia nut milk, ½ cup Lily’s Chocolate Chips. Super easy and delicious. A new favorite from my Vitamix!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gwyni from Hemp Milk/organic Cocoa Powder I substituted with Hemp Milk and organic Cocoa Powder and organic chocolate raspberry bar pieces. Way too thick and extremely bitter. Adding double stevia and maple syrup was not enough sweeter. If you need to sub for diet reasons; increase milk to 3cups and decrease chocolate by 3x...adjust for sweetness

Rated 5 out of 5 by The Security Lady from The Best Peppermint Hot Chocolate Ever! The recipe is very easy. I substituted Young Living Vitality Peppermint Oil for the peppermint sticks, fresh homemade Rice Milk (recipe from the VitaMix Whole Food recipe book), and dark chocolate in place of the semi-sweet chocolate and it was AMAZING! Thank you so much for this recipe!
