I love hot drinks during the winter season. From coffee to hot chocolate, I pretty much don’t discriminate. I always start my mornings with coffee, but at night hot cocoa is my drink of choice. My kids also love it when we grab our blankets and gather with our hot chocolate to watch a movie. It’s one of our favorite things to do during the holiday season.

This homemade peppermint hot chocolate recipe is super simple and easy to make. It was created by one of my assistants and I can assure you it taste as good as it looks.
