Blogmas Day 10 | Peppermint White Hot Chocolate

Serves 2 large mugs (I used mason jars)

An instant sachet hot chocolate just wont make the cut this Christmas!

Just kidding…… I love hot chocolates right across the board, no matter how they’re made. It’s just the perfect ‘warm me up’ treat to enjoy after a day of Christmas shopping in the snow.

I’ve always loved the idea of creating a REAL hot chocolate but if I’m honest, I’ve always thought it just wasn’t worth the time and effort to make when I could just boil the kettle for one instead…. I was VERY wrong.

This simple recipe didn’t take every second of my attention to make, like I thought it would. I just allowed the milk to heat up slowly with minimal effort on my part, checking it occasionally to keep an eye on the melting candy cane. Once the candy cane had fully melted, the milk was hot enough to melt the chocolate quite quickly, this sped up the process a lot. Then it was just a case of adding the Peppermint whilst off the heat. Viola!

Then for my favourite part….. the fun part….. making it look pretty…..!

I chose to top with whipped cream, crushed candy cane, Christmas sprinkles and white chocolate shavings (which in my opinion looked like a topping of snow ⛄️)


You can use any toppings…
