Peppermint Hot Chocolate ...

This weekend was the perfect excuse to make home made hot chocolate. It turned out yummy !! so I thought I would share the simple recipe ...

It leaves the house smelling good too !!!!

You Will Need 

  • 1/3 cup of Cocoa Powder 
  • 1 Pint of Milk
  • Handful of Chocolate Chips
  • 3-4 Candy Canes Crushed (1 for serving)
  • Pinch of salt 


Place cocoa in a medium none-stick  saucepan. Gradually whisk in milk until cocoa has dissolved. Add chocolate chips and crushed peppermint; simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until chocolate and peppermint have melted. And the mixture has thickened.
Add salt.  

Use a sieve and a measuring jug to pour the mixture into. Then use the jug to pour the hot chocolate into mugs. serve each with a Candy cane.

Me and the girls liked to dip our candy canes into the hot chocolate ... yummy :)

Now all you need to do is watch a Christmas Movie and your all set !!
