Halloween is done, and that means the road to Thanksgiving and Christmas are paved with parties, gatherings, and time with friends and family. That being said, it also means that you’ve probably raided your recipe index or Pinterest boards looking for some unique, tasty treats and beverages to share with everyone. This not only indicating your skills in the kitchen or behind a bar, but in the process, you probably also secretly enjoyed some of your favorites. We’re pretty sure this next drink will fast become one of them.

Peppermint Hot Chocolate is a combination of taste sensations we’ve come to appreciate in the wintertime wrapped up together in an adult beverage. No matter the temperature here in Texas (because sometimes it can be downright hot here on a winter day), we tend to make time for hot chocolate. Adding the peppermint makes it practically a seasonal celebration, considering the sharing of candy canes in the same flavor we’ve experienced once or twice during a family Christmas. Delish is the website that has created the recipe we’re sharing with you for this same reason, nostalgia. The blending of the chocolate, the hot drink sensation on a cool evening, and the taste of peppermint from the “adult” component of this drink are all the reasons why this should be made in your household sooner than later!

Delish shares all the details, ingredients, and measurements needed to mix up Peppermint Hot Chocolate on their web link available here. It only takes five minutes to make, and the recipe creates one drink, but in order to serve a number of people, you’ll simply need to do some basic math for your ingredients. They garnish their version with whipped cream as well as crushed peppermint candy. That’s an option that can make you feel like you’re enjoying something a little more festive and special as opposed to simply sitting down to sip a plain old mug of hot chocolate! Cheers, and enjoy the holiday season!
