Instant Pot Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Welcome to day three of Blogmas! Today I’m sharing one of my favorite winter drinks, Instant Pot peppermint hot chocolate. I love the mix of mint and chocolate; however, I only like a hint of mint. In addition, I love anything I can make in my Instant Pot. I hope after you try this it makes you feel as cozy as I do. You can make this recipe even if you don’t like peppermint by leaving out a single ingredient.

Items Needed:

Instant Pot

Measuring Cups and Spoons


Instant Pot Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Firstly, I wanted to say this is the easier hot chocolate I have ever made. That is if you don’t count hot chocolate packets. I started by putting all the ingredients in my instant pot; milk, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, and mint extract. I gave that all a good whisk together.

After that I turned my Instant Pot to slow cook and set the timer to two hours and thirty minutes. Honestly, I think the longer it sits the better it tastes. Be sure to whisk every once in a while once it’s in warm mode.

Honestly, that is all you have to do. I told you it is insanely easy to make. I like to keep things simple. If you don’t like peppermint you can omit the peppermint extract. Another thing I love it so add in a little bit of Bailey’s. It’s especially delicious added into coffee to make a peppermint mocha. Honestly, the possibilities are endless with this recipe.
