My husband came to me the other day letting me know our hot chocolate mix was out. It doesn’t take long. We love hot chocolate in this house, especially when it starts getting cold out. Our preference is to experiment with ingredients on hand and come up with our own flavors and mixes to warm our hearts and bodies. I decided it was time to come up with a peppermint flavored hot chocolate recipe mix since we hadn’t tried it before.
Peppermint Hot Chocolate Recipe
Next, mix up cocoa powder, powdered sugar, a little salt and powdered milk. Run it through the blender to help make a more consistent mix if you want.
Mix in the peppermint powder and you’re ready for a hot steamy cup of chocolaty, minty heaven. Store mix in an airtight container. If you are a fan of mason jars this mix fits great in a quart sized jar.
Stir approximately two to three tablespoons of mix into a cup of hot water or milk. Let it sit for a minute or two to allow the peppermint pieces to melt down.
- 2 c powdered sugar
- 1 c cocoa powder
- 1/2 c powdered milk
- 1/2 c crushed peppermint candy
- 1 tsp salt
- Mix all ingredients together. Run through blender if desired for a more consistent powdered mix.
- Store mix in an airtight container.
- Place 2 to 3 tbsp mix into mug and add hot water. Let sit a minute before drinking to help improve the peppermint flavor as the peppermint candies melt down. Stir again and enjoy!
