Mug O' Minty Hot Chocolate
The perfect remedy to cold winter wind, this hot chocolate is completed with a dollop of whipped cream and a candy cane garnish.
Why This Recipe Works
Mint lends complexity to and cuts the sweetness of one-dimensional chocolate. We wanted to apply this principle to our Mug O’ Minty Hot Chocolate recipe. Once the hot chocolate was blended and heated through, we added peppermint extract to preserve its intense flavor. A garnish of candy canes was the perfect finishing touch to our Mug O’ Minty Hot Chocolate.
