good, but VERY pepperminty... think I might try 1/2 oz of peppermint schnapps next time. UPDATE: I did 1/2 oz schnapps and it was MUCH better!

This sounded fantastic. I drove to five stores to find the white creme de cacao just so I could make it. I was so excited when I got home I did a test run before my Christmas Eve party and it's a good thing I did. I did not care for it at all. I thought it just might be me, but my husband thought so too. I double checked the recipe and did a second test run with less peppermint schnapps as some reviewers suggested and it was a little better, but not much. If you have the stuff around, give it a try because all of the other reviews were good, you might like it, but I wouldn't go out of your way like I did.

This is very minty, next time I'll just add a drop or two of schnapps. This drink is also excellent with Godiva chocolate liquor. I recommend a two drink limit with this tasty cocktail! It is so delicious and goes down very smoothly. I think it may be the large amount of sugar in the drink because the headache the next morning is quite awful!

Prepared as listed. Was a huge success at my party. Several people had seconds, I had thirds. ;-) I actually ran out. One note: if you're going to be using 10oz martini glasses the batch listed really only makes one glass.

So easy, and so delicious! You don't need candy canes - cocktail is white and pretty in the martini glass without it.

Served these Sunday for the cocktail hour and everyone liked them. They were sweet, so you’re really not going to want to have more than two, perhaps three at the most. But they are good and I sure I will be making them again in the future.

Very good my family had it for thanksgiving.

Recipe as written was too minty for us. After much experimentation(tough job but someone has to do it!) our favorite version now consists of 1 oz cream, 1 oz chocolate flavored vodka and 2 oz cream de cacao.
