Winter is here! For me, the most exciting part of the pending holiday season is peppermint. I go crazy for candy cane. I love cozy nights, cuddling, and binge watching movies. To top it off, holiday baking and drinks. I am a sucker for it all.
I am glad we got sun and beaches out of our system with Miami. It makes the cold more fun.
This is a super simple hot chocolate drink. Milk frother is optional, but, it does make your drink look super fancy and legit. Mine is from ikea.
- 6 Ghiradelli Peppermint Dark Chocolate Squares
- 1 cup milk (2% milk) warmed and frothed at 60C
- 1 tablespoon crushed peppermint candy (candy cane is ok too)
Melt the chocolate squares separately. You can do it bain marie or microwave it for 20 second intervals. Once milk is heated and frothed to 60C, add the melted chocolate and froth again. The peppermint candy (candy cane) will add a deeper peppermint taste.
Add some marshmallows if you want! enjoy :)
