Hot chocolate shouldn’t taste like warm chocolate-flavored milk. It should be all about the chocolate — thick, rich chocolate. This drink is super indulgent, super chocolatey and super creamy. It’s not for the weak of heart. If you must, increase the milk. Or just pour yourself an espresso cup full and sip slowly.
Peppermint Hot Chocolate
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 crushed peppermint (we used a coffee grinder
- 1 cup dark chocolate, chopped
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
Over medium-low heat melt chocolate with peppermint, stirring often. Don’t allow the mix to boil. Whisk in the cream and cocoa powder. Pour in the milk and bring to heat without allowing to boil. Whisk constantly to break up any peppermint bits. Serve warm.
