8. Peppermint Hot Chocolate...

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.

Recipe Ingredients:

• 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

Directions:

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.
