Rich and creamy White Chocolate Peppermint Hot cocoa recipe - one of the best drink recipes you'll try this holiday season!

I’ve said it before… I love me some White Chocolate! I think it pairs really well with so many things. Milk Chocolate, Fruit, Caramel, Pretzels, the list goes on. One thing I love mixing it with is Peppermint. And what better time of year than now to enjoy the combo! That is why today we are sharing a recipe for White Chocolate Peppermint Hot Cocoa!

I admit this drink is my new favorite holiday beverage. It is so decadent and delicious and would be perfect served at a Christmas party or even enjoyed while caroling. The kids especially loved this hot cocoa and were excited that candy canes were involved.

We also like to gift hot cocoa to neighbors and friends, so if you’re looking for ideas on how to do that, be sure to check out: Hot Cocoa Jar Gift OR Hot Cocoa Mug Gift. I think they’d be a huge hit!
