Rumple Minze hot chocolate

I got your Holiday Cheer right here. Ghirardelli Double Chocolate cocoa with Rumple Minze peppermint schnapps and marshmallows. Serve with Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate-Covered Peppermint Joe Joe's for dunking. They taste like a cross between Girl Scouts Thin MInts and Oreos, with crushed candy cane on top.


This tastes like the holidays.

Delicious way to enjoy the holiday, especially if it's so cold outside.

Happy holiday, Heather!

You need a gayer mug.

Peter M said...

Luv the mug (so girly of you), lots of marshmallows are a must...tuck in!

The Short (dis)Order Cook said...

You need the hot chocolate with rumple minze or you run the risk of having the liquor eat through your mug. That's strong stuff.

LOVE spiked hot chocolate. The winter I was writing my thesis in college it was the only thing that got me through...

Elra - Booze makes it taste better. :)

Deeb - Schmappy shmolidays to you.

KPH - In June? That's crazy.

TAO - Booze and chocolate is the story of Jesus.

Jube - I thought the devil was in the details. Also, sorry, but Valentine's and Easter is more candy times.

Claudia - Whenever you make your way out here, I will be sure and not serve this to you. Amaretto?

Petah - You're so cute with your "bikkies."

Valli - A mug of boozy cocoa sets the bar pretty low, but I'll try to keep it interesting. :)

Darius - It's so good, it might hafta stick around for awhile after the holidays. :)

Syd - I looked, but the ones with buttsecks on them were sold out.

Peter the Greek - It's nice that you said "girly" instead of "childish".

Rachel - Hundred proof? Yeah, the cocoa helps.

Mags - I feel that we're at the point where I can call you Mags. I need to experiment with other flavors of this spiked cocoa.

Especially with the Bambi cup. I think that's important.

michelle @ TNS said...

that is my all-time favorite winter beverage.

sometimes when we go to the dog park in the freezing cold, i bring it in a thermos. because i like to PARTY.

That mug is sooo cute!

Hillary said...

Wow - what a great sounding recipe! Perhaps I'll try this on New Year's.

Veggie Wedgie said...

Ok, seriously, the mug with the overflowing, overcrowded marshmallows is calling my name!It looks so perfect, like little clouds...on hot cocoa...ok I ll stop now.

The Spiteful Chef said...

I can still drink the shit out of Rumple, even in shot form. It's more than I can say for Jaeger, which makes me puke in sinks. I've heard.


My captcha is "alick."

Heather said...

Jen - It's actually Deery Lou, of Hello Kitty fame. But, yeah. :)

Michelle - You're the kind of party I want to girl with.

Cookie - Had a few, have we?

Dessert Girl - Thanks, it's my special mug.

Veggie Wedgie - There's something about marshmallows, isn't there? You could have it with vegetarian ones.

Kristie - At least it doesn't make you almost have a threeway with two dudes in a public park. Almost.

LOVE that darling 60's Bambi mug!

Lo said...

Nothing beats a bit of peppermint schnapps in hot cocoa! Simply delish.

Brittany said...

I have a thing for awesome mugs. I collect them. And I know I've said this before (as I know I've seen this mug before), but that darling little deer mug warms my black heart

Leigh said...

yes. yes it does. wonderful stuff - I fricking love this time of year.

We Are Never Full said...

damn. this does look good. although rumple minze reminds me of being a doughy, pie-eyed college freshman doing keg stands followed by shots of this. it took 11 years to realize that this isn't really the primary use of the liquor. it really is meant to make holiday drinks!
