Peppermint hot chocolate is a creamy combination of decadent chocolate and peppermint flavor. It’s the perfect cocoa recipe to sip on during the holiday season or all winter long.


  • 4 cups of Great Value® Whole Milk
  • 14 ounces of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract*
  • 1.5 bags of DOVE® Peppermint Bark (about 45 candies)

For Garnish (optional)

  • Whipped Cream
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • White Peppermint Chocolate M&M’S®


  1. Stir together 4 cups of milk, 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract, and 14 ounces of sweetened condensed milk in a small slow cooker.
  2. Add in the unwrapped DOVE® Peppermint Bark.
  3. Heat on low for 2-3 hours or until the hot chocolate reaches the desired temperature, stirring occasionally to incorporate the chocolate.
  4. Serve hot. Garnish with mini marshmallows, whipped cream, and White Peppermint Chocolate M&M’S® if desired.
