Peppermint Hot Chocolate

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.

We recommend our pfeffernusse cookies for dunking in this warm treat.
