There are two different ways to make this drink, it is a matter of preference and which liqueurs you have in stock. Both versions end up tasting like an old fashioned Peppermint Patty filled with a soothing blend of peppermint and chocolate.

This can also be made as a shooter or warmed up for a Hot Peppermint Patty.

Yummy with a few modifications..., Member mnmom3

I made these for our cookie exchange party and they were a huge hit!! I did the cream with schnapps and clear creme de cacoa. I did add one oz milk (just to knock back the calories and make it last a bit longer). I also sprinkled some Mocha Hazelnut Sprinkles on it from the Pampered Chef to really give it a finishing touch. Any crunchy cookie/candy topping would be a nice addition. Serve over ice.
