Today there is SNOW in our forecast. In the South this calls for an emergency run to the grocery store for staples like milk and bread and toilet paper and hot chocolate mix. I usually keep a stock of the instant hot cocoa mix during these cold winter months. However, I think my family is done with the fake stuff. I created this recipe last year while the kids were out sledding. They commented that this hot chocolate was the best hot chocolate they’d ever tasted.
- 1 quart half and half
- 1 12 oz package semi-sweet chocolate chip pieces
- 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
- miniature marshmallows for garnish
- crushed peppermint pieces for garnish
In a medium saucepan, heat the half and half and chocolate chips over medium heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted and well mixed. Add the peppermint extract. Serve with miniature marshmallows and peppermint pieces.
