Peppermint Hot Chocolate

My husband and I hosted Christmas at our house for the first time this year.  I felt so grown up :-).  I also felt quite in the mood for Christmas-y things and was looking for a way to use some of the peppermint pieces leftover from peppermint ice cream.  My sister and I made this hot chocolate and thought I’d share!

Ingredients:

1 mugful of coconut milk (from a carton- I prefer the original flavor)

3 T. Ghiradelli Double Chocolate hot chocolate mix (may contain traces of allergens if that concerns you)

1-2 T. peppermint stick, crushed (sold pre-crushed in a bag in the baking aisle)

1-2 T. SoDelicious whipped topping or your own homemade topping

 

Directions:  Microwave the coconut milk in the mug until hot (2-4 minutes depending on your microwave).

Stir in the hot chocolate mix.

Stir in 1+ T. peppermint sticks crumbles to taste.

Top with whipped topping and a few more crumbles of peppermint stick.

Enjoy!

 

This recipe works just as well with regular milk and regular whipped topping, so use what you need.

I eat gluten, dairy, and egg free and want to make food that other people would want to eat too.
