This is a dreamy white hot chocolate, with just a hint of peppermint. Easy to mix, using either spearmint or peppermint candies. Add a squirt of cream from a can, or whip your own, then sprinkle with colored sugar - red for Christmas, or green for St. Patrick’s Day.
A good friend shared this recipe, and it is the ultimate hot chocolate. In the time it takes to warm milk on a stove, you’re practically done.
She did tell me that she tried it with mint extract, and it tasted just a little ‘off’ - so peppermint was just the right flavor.
Reduce the amounts to serve fewer (or just yourself). Since this contains extract - the flavor will evaporate if you refrigerate it and reheat it later - so it’s best served right after you make it.
