PREVIOUS: Caramel Hot Chocolate NEXT: Banana Hot Chocolate

Ingredients (4)

  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 6 peppermint candies, crushed (about 4 teaspoons)
  • 5 ounces good-quality milk chocolate, coarsely chopped

Lacing hot chocolate with peppermint candies gives it an instant holiday twist. But we’d turn to it anytime a hot chocolate craving sets in.

What to buy: For this recipe, use high-end chocolate, such as El Rey 41 percent milk chocolate.

Instructions

  1. 1Combine milk, cream, and candies in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Whisk occasionally until candies are dissolved, about 4 minutes.
  2. 2Add chocolate and whisk until it is completely melted and well incorporated, about 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
