Today We Celebrate!

February 19th is National Chocolate Mint Day.  Who says we can’t celebrate with a big mug of peppermint hot chocolate?  Rich and yummy, this delicious drink gets its minty flavor with peppermint oil instead of extract.


Peppermint Hot Chocolate


1 1/2 cups heavy cream

1 1/2 cups milk

1/4 cup sugar

1/8 teaspoon salt

6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped

3 drops peppermint oil

Sweetened whipped cream, for garnish

Chocolate shavings, for garnish


In a saucepan, combine the cream, milk, sugar, and salt and heat over medium-low heat. When the cream mixture just begins to steam, add the chopped chocolate, and stir, until melted. Stir in the peppermint oil. Divide the hot chocolate among mugs and top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

Makes 4 servings.
