Peppermint Hot Chocolate
A classic holiday treat - whether you're out caroling or looking at the Christmas lights, my Peppermint Hot Chocolate is creamy, warm and full of festive flavor!
What you need
1 ½ cups heavy cream
1 ½ cups milk
1/3 cup sugar
6 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3 milk chocolate truffles
2 crushed peppermint candies
sweetened whipped cream, for garnish
chocolate shavings, for garnish
In a saucepan, combine the cream, milk, and sugar and heat over medium-low heat.
Once the mixture has begun to steam, add the chopped chocolate and stir.
As the chocolate begins to melt, add the truffles and crushed peppermint candies. Stir until melted.
Pour hot chocolate into mugs and top with cream and chocolate shavings.
