A big mug of Peppermint White Hot Chocolate is a great drink to have in your hands while curled up in front of your fire place or next to your Christmas tree. It’s a delicious hot cocoa that’s made with peppermint kisses and white chocolate!
White Hot Chocolate
I hope it’s hot cocoa weather where you are because it’s 80s here. We’ve had 1 day of winter so far and we missed it because we were away on vacation. Maybe in January we will get another day or two of winter.
Thanksgiving came and went, and we are still wearing t-shits. I’ve started decorating for Christmas and had to crank the AC way up to try and get it the holiday mood.
I made some cocoa for kids because nothing puts you in a holiday mood more than Christmas lights and hot chocolate. I wanted to make something new for them instead of the same old cocoa.
Baby girl was visiting and she loves peppermint. I proposed a peppermint white hot chocolate and got a “jumping yay!”
This is a very simple hot chocolate and combination of peppermint and white chocolate is simply divine.
It’s smooth and creamy. This hot cocoa gets it’s smooth, creamy texture from being cooked with peppermint kisses. You can choose to use whole milk, reduced fat, or even fat free milk.
This is a rich holiday drink, so I often use fat free milk.
Don’t add any extra sugar because the drink is already quite sweet.
Get kids to peel the wrappers off the peppermint kisses. It’s tedious but kids do it super fast and it’s fun for them. Plus, they get to earn their sweet drinks.
