I hope all of you had a great weekend!
Mine sure was busy and fun with my family. We are enjoying the countdown and opening our Advent Calendar notes each day with the kiddos. This weekend we went so see some awesomely decorated houses in the neighborhood, and we also made some  OH SO  YUMMY  peppermint hot chocolate.
We sure needed it, the weather got super cold by Sunday afternoon.
This warm pleasing hot chocolate was heaven.
The best thing was actually when we figured we need some hot drink and found this recipe. I dig my pantry and found everything at home to make this super delish hot chocolate.
YAY!
Don’t you love when you have what you need and no need to drop to the store?
Milk, unsweetened cocoa, peppermint and chocolate chips…
That is it!

  1. Made this just now as I wanted to make some homemade hot chocolate for after Christmas dinner and this was a hit! We didn't have any peppermint sticks available so I added 6 of the white chocolate candy cane Kisses in and it was delightful! Thank you!
