Well, I think I’ve been watching too much, because as I was taking this photo of the Peppermint White Hot Chocolate, I thought ‘oh dang, that looks classy!’ And then Jim’s voice entered my head asking ‘but is it classy enough?’. I guess office quotes are officially part of my thought process. 😆

Anyways, I digress. This Peppermint White Hot Chocolate is SUPER easy. The recipe took me all of five minutes to type up, because all you have to do enjoy this ‘classy’ drink is put all the ingredients in a pot on your stovetop and stir until heated up! It’s made by melting actual peppermint candies (the soft kind that are easily dissolve-able!), and that’s what gives it that fun pink color. If you’re not sure what soft peppermints are, they’re also referred to as ‘peppermint puffs’ at stores, and can be found in the candy aisle at most stores.

This would be the perfect addition to those upcoming Holiday parties, I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!

    The recipe does not mention topping with whipped cream. Is there any chance the

    1/2 cup heavy cream is the topping?

    Looks so good!

      The whipped cream was there for the picture- the recipe doesn’t call for it. But you can add it! The heavy cream is to go directly in the hot chocolate

    Could you include a picture of the peppermint puffs so we can get a better idea of what you mean? Maybe even include a link to a brand you’ve used?
