During the holidays growing up,.I remember always sipping on some abuelita hot chocolate. It was one of my favorite holiday traditions. I want to continue that tradition with my family and this year I had to make it for the holidays!

As I was putting together our holiday must haves, I knew we had to have some hot chocolate but not just any, it had to have a twist. We decided on Peppermint Abuelita Hot Chocolate. It's creamy, rich, and oh so sweet! It's perfect for any holiday fiesta for sure!

When the candy canes have dissolved your hot chocolate is ready and should be a light rose brown. Delicious!

Serve with whipped cream and break apart your leftover candy cane over the top.

Party Tip: Make a hot chocolate bar. Keep your hot chocolate warm in a crock pot. Have your guests add their own toppings:, candy cane, sprinkles, chocolate fudge, whipped cream, etc. The kids and adults will be sure to enjoy this holiday recipe!

Beware: Abuelita hot chocolate will develop a film over the top once it's cooling. Simply reheat and serve.

Save our recipe: Pin our recipe for later use!
