The holiday season is officially here. For some, that means Hallmark movies 24/7. Others set about trying to find the ugliest sweater they can. But for many, the most exciting part of the season is the variety of festive treats.

From pie and cookies to ice cream, there is clearly no shortage of delicious goodies this time of year. But that doesn’t mean there shouldn’t be more! Dairy Queen apparently agrees because now through December, you can get a brand new Blizzard that sounds perfect for the winter holiday season: Peppermint Hot Cocoa!

The new Peppermint Hot Cocoa Blizzard blends rich cocoa fudge, choco chunks and candy cane pieces with creamy DQ soft serve vanilla ice cream. It’s then topped with whipped cream because, obviously, hot chocolate is simply better that way. This cozy beverage is available at participating DQ locations nationwide in mini, small, medium and large.

If peppermint isn’t your thing, or if you’ve already had enough of it this season, DQ has another seasonal treat you might prefer: a Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Blizzard.

Crafted with snickerdoodle cookie dough pieces sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and blended with vanilla soft serve, you can find it on DQ menus throughout the holidays.

Dairy Queen also has a brand new seasonal shake if you prefer drinking your dessert. Their new Cinnamon Roll Shake — made with real milk, vanilla soft serve ice cream and whipped topping — sounds delightful.

If you were lucky enough to try last year’s winter seasonal treat — an Oreo Hot Cocoa Blizzard — and still have a craving, you can order an Oreo Blizzard year-round and add your own hot fudge sauce, or skip the ice cream and go for an Oreo hot chocolate to warm you up instead.

You can also get one at Dunkin’ Donuts if you don’t want to make it yourself, buy the mix on Amazon or take a look at this recipe from Sweet C’s Design.
