Peppermint Hot Chocolate

This creamy peppermint beverage will have you begging for more!

Peppermint Hot Chocolate is my hubby’s favorite of the season! He loves everything peppermint at this time of year and hot chocolate is no exception. Over the weekend we had some very cold weather and snow so it was a perfect time to make a pot of this delicious and creamy peppermint hot chocolate.

Peppermint Hot Chocolate Recipe

Peppermint Hot Chocolate calls for peppermint oil but if you do not have peppermint essential oil you can substitute and use peppermint extract. This is the perfect recipe for Christmas morning too!
