Christmas is only eight days away. With all the holiday celebrating going on, you need to make sure to set aside some time to put your feet up and relax! I can’t think of a better way to do that than with a hot cup of this Easy Peppermint Hot Chocolate!
This hot chocolate is silky smooth and so creamy with the perfect hint of peppermint. For a lower fat version of this hot chocolate, you can use 1% or 2% milk.
I hope your holidays are merry and bright and filled with lots of Peppermint Hot Chocolate!
With love from my kitchen to yours,
Peppermint Hot Chocolate
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 cup of milk chocolate chocolate chips
2 tbsp. of cocoa powder
7 cups of whole milk
1 ½ tsp. peppermint extract
- Add the sweetened condensed milk, milk chocolate chips, and cocoa powder to a large sauce pan on medium high heat. Melt the chocolate chips and stir until the mixture is creamy.
- Turn the heat down to low and add the milk. Whisk the mixture until well combined. Add the peppermint extract. Bring the hot chocolate to a simmer and remove from heat. Allow to cool slightly before serving. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or some mini marshmallows.
Store any leftover hot chocolate in the refrigerator.
