Peppermint Hot Chocolate



It is starting to get colder here and I have been wanting some good peppermint hot chocolate. Here is a recipe that I found that is easy to make.

Peppermint Hot Chocolate:
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups powdered coffee cream (any kind)
1 cup + 2 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder
20 finely crushed peppermint candies

Mix all the ingredients together and store in an airtight container. To make, add 3 tbsp of the mix to a cup of hot water. Add mini marshmallows on top.

I added an extra tbsp of the mix to my cup because I found it to be a little watery. I also added a piece of chocolate to give it an extra chocolaty flavor. If you'd like, add this mix to your coffee in the morning. It tastes so good!!!

Put some mixture in canning jars with the directions, a cute note, and a ribbon for a great Christmas gift!

  1. That looks delicious! Try an ounce of baking chocolate instead of cocoa powder too:)

    Hopping by and following your lovely blog. BTW, I have just published my first children's picture book that is easy to read, and in colorful and entertaining images your precious little loved ones would enjoy. With every book you buy, $1.00 goes to raise 10,000 copies of it for the less fortunate children ages 0-5 years old across the U.S. The best thing is, you can also help make a difference by simply sharing this news to family and friends. The book is great for gift-giving too:)

    I'd be honored to have you follow back too:) @ http://blyro.peachburst.com.
