This holiday spiked peppermint hot chocolate is a great way to stay in the holiday cheer. If you love peppermint and the taste of hot chocolate this will make the perfect holiday drink.
The Christmas season is our favorite time of the year. Indulging is an even big part. From the food to the drinks. This year is no different. Every year we try and serve as well as indulge in a new drink we wouldn’t normally have. Last year it was chocolate martinis and this year it is spiked peppermint hot chocolate.
The Winter and holiday season gets so cold so this peppermint hot chocolate is a great way to warm up. A couple of weeks ago we got our first snowfall and 30-degree temps and this hot chocolate recipe was perfect to help stay warm. Good drinks with our favorite people are always part of our family traditions. You can go to the non-boozy version for the kiddos to enjoy too.
This recipe calls for simple ingredients which makes it so much easier to make. From milk ( or you could go non-dairy with oat milk) real cocoa, cinnamon, chocolate syrup and Torani Sugar-Free Peppermint Syrup.
Peppermint is always a must-have for the Winter season. Reminding us of the aroma a candy cane and mint has that we top off on our tree. Adding it in homemade hot chocolate is even better.
Torani syrups are always a must-have in our house. Made with simple and thoughtfully sourced ingredients. They’re super easy to use. They always put a twist on our fave recipes like; drinks and baking recipes. You can purchase Torani online at torani.com
