Oh, how I adore my warm winter drinks. My happy place during the cold months includes a huge sweater, a roaring fireplace, and a warm mug in my hands. Plus, I’m a hot chocolate addict. It’s delicious. And warm. And chocolatey.
Every Christmas Eve I make a big batch of this creamy crock pot hot chocolate for our family to wake up to on Christmas morning. This year, I thought I’d try a peppermint white hot chocolate version. It’s delicious. And warm. And slides down my throat leaving sweet pepperminty tingles on it’s way down. So yum.
And if you’re an essential oils fan, this peppermint white hot chocolate uses peppermint essential oil, which can wake you right up, relieve a stress headache, and feels clean and energizing. You can also substitute peppermint extract, no biggie.
The ingredients are simple and that’s what I love about this yummy hot chocolate. There are just four: milk, white chocolate chips, vanilla, and peppermint essential oil (found here).
