“I love the combination of mint and cocoa. When I saw a chai recipe with cocoa in it, I had the idea of just combining mint tea with cocoa and ended up with this. Instead of peppermint schnapps you can use mint extract, but as I don't have mint extract I don't know how much of it you need. If you don't want the alcohol, just boil the cocoa for one more minute after adding the schnapps.”
