Tried & Tested-Holiday Drink

Merry Christmas! πŸ˜€

The holidays are the perfect time to eat as much as you want without feeling guilty. One of my favorite drinks to devour during the holidays is hot chocolate with a touch of peppermint topped with toasted marshmallows. Today, I’m going to share this simple recipe with you!

  • Milk-1 cup
  • Sugar-1/4th cup
  • Cocoa Powder (Semi-Sweet)-1/4th cup
  • Vanilla Extract-1/2 teaspoon
  • Peppermint (You can either chop the candy cane into little pieces or use the small round candies)
  • Toasted Marshmallows
  1. Keep a pan on medium heat.
  2. Add the milk, sugar, and cocoa powder. Whisk until all the ingredients are blended well together. Bring it to a boil and keep mixing until it becomes a little thick.
  3. Add the vanilla extract and peppermint, and keep it on medium heat for about 2 minutes. This will add the flavor to the mixture.
  4. Insert a skewer stick through the marshmallow and toast on the gas until golden brown.
  5. Finally, pour the hot chocolate into your favorite mug and top it with a toasted marshmallow.

Voila! I hope you enjoy this delicious holiday drink.

    Ooooh, this is a great idea! Candy canes aren’t all that common at Christmas in the UK, but if I can track some down I’ll definitely give this a go to round off the festive period. πŸ™‚
