Peppermint and chocolate were just meant to go together.  Especially when it’s white chocolate.  And it’s hot.  And it’s in drink form.  And topped with whipped cream(you could go all out and use Peppermint Whipped Cream!).  And sprinkles! This Peppermint White Hot Chocolate is perfect for curling up with by the tree, after a long day, and relaxing while listening to Christmas songs.  Nothing is better than sitting in a dim room lit by Christmas lights.  Unless you’re sitting there with this drink.

Did I mention sprinkles??  This drink is super easy to put together.  It’s basically just tossing ingredients into a small saucepan and cooking until the chocolate is melted.  No need to bring it to a boil, just heat it nice and slow while stirring and the chocolate will melt away and you’ll be left with this super creamy white hot chocolate.  I added both vanilla extract and peppermint extract to mine to give it a sweet peppermint flavor.  The sprinkles again, are optional, but why not?!
