Hot Chocolate Peppermint Shots – festive and fun for all of your holiday parties – fill with hot chocolate, spiked or not, or any other holiday beverage that pairs with mint!
My last beverage of the year is deliciously non alcoholic – a hot chocolate made with dark chocolate. Seeing as I bring it to you in a Candy Cane Shot Glass, I did include a variation on the recipe that does include that chocolate vodka… or rum. or peppermint schnapps.
Whatever floats your cocktail boat.
As much as I would like to claim that I made these shot glasses, I did not. Ironically, they are from the same company (FredFlare) that made the shot glass mould from that recipe.
AND! these super fun Peppermint Shot Glasses are on sale right now!
We make these shots almost every year. Most recently, we had them at our party where we all decorated a Cardamom Protein Cookie Gingerbread House. We garnished them with a brownie topper, and spiked them – rum or vodka, your choice!
