Make this rich and creamy After 8 Peppermint Hot Chocolate as it’s the ultimate decadent chocolate drink. It also has pieces of the After 8 chocolate on top for a delicious hot beverage!


  • 4 cups of milk
  • 1.5 cups of chocolate chips (you can use milk or semi-sweet I used the latter)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • After Eight Chocolates (4) to garnish (not in Canada get them on HERE or see notes for alternatives.
  • Whipping cream (optional)
  • Chocolate sauce


  1. In a heavy saucepan heat the milk until warm, almost scalding but not quite.
  2. Add in chocolate chips, extract, cocoa powder, and sugar. Stir continuously until chocolate is melted and the mixture is hot. You don’t want to boil the milk, just heat it.
  3. Pour hot chocolate into cups and garnish with whipping cream and After Eight chocolates. Drizzle some chocolate sauce on top.


Can’t get After Eights where you are? The closest alternatives I can think of are Ovations or York Peppermint Patties. They are not the same but close alternatives.
