Peppermint Hot Chocolate Recipe!

Time for another Christmas recipe! This time it is a delicious hot drink perfect for the holiday season. If you like Starbucks Peppermint Hot Chocolate then this is a cheaper alternative that tastes just as good!



All you will need is a mug's worth of milk, 2 candy canes crushed (you could use 1/8 of a teaspoon of peppermint extra if preferred), 4 teaspoons of hot chocolate powder and optionally squirty cream for the top.

♥ Firstly crush up your candy canes, to do this i popped them in to a bag and then had some fun hitting them with a rolling pin.
♥ Then pour the milk into your mug of choice to see how much you'll need and then tip it in to a pan to heat up.
♥ Add to the pan four heaped teaspoons of hot chocolate powder. Then add three quarters of your crushed candy cane to the pan, keep stirring it until it has all dissolved.
♥ Once steaming add the hot chocolate back to your mug. To finish off pop some squirty cream on top along with the rest of the crushed candy cane.

Hope you enjoy!

See you next Friday for another Christmas post!

Thanks for reading Xx
