RECIPE: Hot Chocolate Peppermint Bark Ice Cream Float

Before those limited edition candy cane and peppermint ice creams disappear, have your last hurrah

Pastry chef Christina Tosi of Momofuku Milk Bar in New York City created this treat with Häagen-Dazs Peppermint Bark Ice Cream Float

“I do not mess around with my hot chocolate,” says Chef Tosi. “As a pastry chef, it’s practically required to have a killer hot chocolate recipe at the ready when the cold months come knocking….Häagen-Dazs Peppermint Bark Ice Cream just screamed out ‘dunk me in hot chocolate!’”

The flavor, white chocolate ice cream blended with crunchy, chocolaty peppermint bark and peppermint candy pieces, is available through the end of the month.

    1. COMBINE cocoa powder, sugar, chocolate and salt in a medium mixing bowl.

    2. BRING milk to a near scalding boil in a medium sized saucepan over medium heat. Pour milk immediately over the bowl of cocoa, sugar, chocolate and salt. Allow it to sit for 1 minute.

    3. WHISK slowly to combine. Continue whisking until mixture is evenly combined and silky smooth. You can always pass it through a fine mesh strainer if you’re concerned about lumps.

    4. POUR hot chocolate evenly into mugs and add optional schnapps; stir to mix. Scoop ice cream on top. Garnish with optional candy cane/peppermint stick.



  • For a crowd, make the hot chocolate in advance in a large batch, so all you have to do is heat and serve.
  • Invest in quality cocoa powder and chocolate: It will make a world of difference in the taste and texture of your hot chocolate.
  • You can use 0% or 2% milk in place of the whole milk.
