Peppermint Hot Cocoa

Here it is!
Let’s back up…If you are my fan on Facebook, you already know about this hot cocoa. Yesterday, I tried Peppermint Hot Cocoa for the first time and I am in love! I can’t believe that I’ve never tried any flavored hot cocoas, I’ve been missing out.
I made this hot cocoa for us as a dessert and it was a great dessert. What is your favorite hot cocoa??

3 cups of fat free milk
3 tablespoons of Ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
3 tsp sugar
handful of peppermint mini marshmallows
a few more marshmallows for topping
~ In a small sauce pot, heat up milk on medium heat
~ Add sugar, peppermint extract and vanilla extract
~ Add the handful of marshmallows and sift in the cocoa powder. Stir until cocoa powder in completely incorporated
~ Cook on medium heat, stirring often, until the marshmallows are melted (about 7-9 minutes).
~ Top off with a few marshmallows and ENJOY!
