White Chocolate Peppermint Hot Chocolate Recipe

by Linette

‘Tis the season for me to crave hot chocolate! I love to hold the warm steamy mug, and taste the delicious richness of hot chocolate! I also love to experiment with different flavors. White chocolate is one of my favorite flavor variations. Since Christmas is coming up I thought I’d play a little with peppermint and white chocolate. I came up with this white chocolate peppermint hot chocolate recipe.  I have to say the result was pure bliss!

We love hot drinks and now that it’s freezing outside (I consider anything under 60 to be freezing), we’ll be drinking a whole lot more warm drinks. I’m not a chocolate & mint combo fan, but my husband is and I bet he’d be thrilled if I whipped one of these up for him!

Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
