As we get ready to flip the calendar from October to November, we face the inevitable end of pumpkin spiceseason. But don’t worry. With the end of PSL season comes the perfect weather for another cozy beverage — hot chocolate!

Few things beat a delicious mug of hot cocoa, and the steamy, creamy drink can also conjure memories of home and the holidays. But we’ve found something that will take your hot chocolate consumption to the next level.

What do you get when you combine a York Peppermint Patty with hot chocolate? Say hello to York Peppermint Chocolate hot cocoa mix. Now we’re talking hot beverage heaven!


There’s a lot to be happy about with this seasonal drink. First of all, anything that’s based on the York Peppermint Patty is a win. After all, what goes together better than chocolate and peppermint?

Not only that but this genius hot chocolate idea comes from the sweet imagination of Hershey’s — and they know their chocolate. And while it looks like this cocoa blend is more milk chocolate than the classic York Peppermint Patty dark chocolate, we’re not going to complain about that. The drink still looks absolutely decadent.

Each York Peppermint Chocolate Hot Cocoa Mix package comes with six individual packets to enjoy. At only 90 calories per pouch and one gram of saturated fat, anyone can enjoy this treat without feeling guilty. The mix is made with real milk to give an extra bit of creaminess. But if you like your hot cocoa extra smooth and creamy, you can mix it with warm milk for a real treat!

If you’re in the mood for a more adult-style beverage, you can add a little extra holiday cheer to your mug. Instagram user @buckeyegurl shared a genius idea for enjoying York Peppermint Chocolate Hot Cocoa — adding a little Smirnoff Peppermint Twist Vodka!

Now we’re talking!

Whether you like your cup of cocoa the classic way or with a bit of a hard twist, it’s all good. You can find York Peppermint Chocolate Hot Cocoa Mix at Walmart stores, or at for as low as $2.93 per box of six packets. Time to stock up that kitchen pantry!
