8. Peppermint Hot Chocolate...
Since I have included a tasty peppermint drink for the adults to enjoy, I just had to include a peppermint recipe that the kids could drink too.
What could be easier than boiling cocoa powder, chocolate chips, milk, and crushed peppermint sticks in a sauce pan together to create the perfect peppermint hot chocolate for the little ones!
Don't forget to give them their own peppermint stick to stir their hot coco with.
• 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
• 1 quart milk
• 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (3 ounces)
• 7 peppermint sticks;
3 crushed (1/4 cup), 4 left whole
• pinch of salt
1. Place cocoa in a medium saucepan. Gradually whisk in milk until cocoa has dissolved. Add chocolate chips and crushed peppermint; simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until chocolate and peppermint have melted, 8 to 10 minutes.
