1 1/4oz.peppermint schnapps - per glass
1 1/4oz.creme de cocoa - per glass
crushed peppermint candies or candy canes
In a medium saucepan, add the milk, chocolate chips, sugar, and salt.
Heat on medium-low heat, whisking frequently. Continue whisking until the chocolate melts completely and the mixture comes to a low simmer. (Do NOT let boil, as it will burn to the bottom of the pan.) Once the liquid comes to a low simmer, promptly remove from heat.
To 3 medium mugs, add 1 1/4 oz. (1 shot) each of the peppermint schnapps and creme de cocoa. Ladle in the hot chocolate to each mug. Top with marshmallows and crushed peppermints. Enjoy right away while hot.
