Peppermint White Hot Chocolate, topped with whipped cream and crushed peppermint candy, is sweet, minty, and comforting and makes a wonderful holiday hot chocolate.
I created this Peppermint White Hot Chocolate as part of a sponsored series with Socialstars and SPLENDA® Brand; all opinions are my own. #SweetSwaps #SplendaSweeties
Sing along with me: “Oh the weather outside is frightful!” You know the song. Across a large swath of the country, the weather really is frightfully cold right now.
The best thing to do is to stay inside with a nice fire and curl up with a good book and a cup of this delightful Peppermint White Hot Chocolate.
With the Christmas Tree up, the holiday lights hung, and the rest of the house decorated for the holidays, it finally feels like Christmas.
However, to me, nothing says Christmas like this Peppermint White Hot Chocolate! It is warm and comforting and sweet and minty and just makes me so happy!
This Peppermint White Hot Chocolate is perfect to serve at a cookie exchange party or a holiday party with friends.
However, I also love to make a cup just for myself to enjoy. It has such a sweet, delicious flavor and is hot and comforting.
To reduce the sugar in this sweet drink I reduce the usual amount of white chocolate chips. Don’t worry it still has lots of that white chocolate flavor. Then I add SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener to sweeten it more.
SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener tastes great and has no calories. It is made with stevia extract which leaves no bitter aftertaste. This means the Peppermint White Hot Chocolate bursts with sweet minty flavor and no aftertaste.
This Peppermint White Hot Chocolate is not only out of this world delicious, it is really easy to make.
Just heat up the milk in a saucepan on the stove, stirring constantly. Stir the white chocolate chips to melt into the milk.
Then add the peppermint extract and SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener. Voila! It is that easy!
I love to add whipped cream and crushed peppermint candy as a garnish but it is delicious even without that.
Then enjoy a sweet, creamy, minty white hot chocolate!
