Peppermint Frozen Hot Chocolate Recipe


There's something a little awkward about drinking hot chocolate at the holidays when it's still 80 degrees in Los Angeles. So why not take those flavors and turn them into an icy treat!

This recipe is for one glass of chocolatey goodness!

Ingredients
1 1/2 c of whole milk
1 package of hot chocolate mix
1 peppermint candy
3 cups of ice
whipped cream (canned or fresh)

Preparation
Heat 1/2 c of milk in a saucepan. Add in hot chocolate mix and peppermint candy. Don't worry if the candy doesn't fully dissolve.

Transfer hot chocolate to a blender and add in the additional cup of milk and the ice. Blend baby blend.

Pour into a tall glass or goblet and top with whipped cream!

Garnish with shaved chocolate, crushed peppermint or fun candy toppers!
