Two years ago, I wrote a post with a recipe to an Italian hot chocolate with peppermint cookies. I’m a massive fan of anything peppermint-flavoured. I mean, yesterday my post for S’mores were candy cane flavoured… I’d have every post for blogmas featuring peppermint if I could… maybe next year!
This year I thought i’d put it in a hot chocolate. Nothing revolutionary, I know. But I haven’t done it yet for this blog, so why not! The following recipe is quite sweet. If you don’t like anything too sweet, you can omit the sugar.
1 mug full of milk (I measured mine with the mug I used – it’s a standard size as you’ll see in the pics)
1/4 tsp of peppermint extract
1 tsp of sugar
60g white chocolate, chopped
1 x candy cane
1. Pour the milk into a pan, along with the sugar and peppermint extract. Whisk a little to combine. Heat until steaming.
2. Add the chocolate and whisk until melted. Pour into your chosen mug.
