Mint + White Chocolate = Yum!
Hi guys – it’s Lily!!
I have a new dessert/drink recipe to share with you today. It’s called Mint White Hot Cocoa. If you like mint and white chocolate and hot cocoa – you’ll LOVE this!! It’s so good and will keep you warm on a cold, winter day. 🙂
It’s super creamy and filled with melted white chocolate chips, with just a hint of mint extract. We added some green food coloring to make it look more festive, and topped it off with whipped cream and crushed andes mints! It was SO delicious!!
Simple to throw together!
This is a perfect drink for holiday parties because it’s so quick and easy to make.
MAKE. All you have to do is heat the milk and half and half over the stovetop over medium heat. Make sure you watch it closely—you want it to be hot, but not boiling. Then mix in the white chocolate chips and stir until they are melted. Stir in the mint extract and food coloring, and voila!
SERVE. You can ladle the mint hot chocolate into individual cups, top it with whipped cream, and crushed andes mints (or whatever chocolate you like!). We also like to add some colorful straws to make it even more fun and festive.
If you would rather substitute white chocolate mix for the the chocolate chips, you can use ¾ cup of white hot chocolate mix. Simply add it to the hot liquid and follow the recipe as usual!
Make it in the crock pot
Add all the ingredients to a crock pot, and stir. Set on LOW heat for 2 hours. When you’re ready to serve, turn off the crock pot and ladle mint hot chocolate into individual servings.
You know what’s great about this mint hot chocolate recipe? You can bring this to people when you are Christmas Caroling and they’ll love you. It will keep them warm and their throats ready to sing. 😉 It’s also great for Christmas parties!!
I hope you can come back again soon for more yummy treats from me.
