I started out just thinking of making hot chocolate, as it was cold outside and I was all about warming up….and hot chocolate always does the trick, but I have to say, as I ventured further into it. I thought, how could I really get this goin with a holiday kick, enter the peppermint oil and crushed peppermint chocolate shavings……and boy did they not disappoint! This was the peppermint chocolate I’d been craving and this was the peppermint chocolate that brings the holidays right to my taste buds!! It was on!
1 1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract oil
sweetened whipped cream
crushed chocolate peppermint candy (I used Dove candies)
