Merry Christmas Eve everybody! Today I have a quick and simple hot chocolate recipe to share with you in hopes that you can serve it to your family tonight and throughout the holidays. For the base, I use almond milk because I love the flavor it gives the drink, but you can use regular milk or soy milk as an alternative. This recipe serves one person, so make sure to adjust depending on your number of guests.
1 cup almond milk
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 Tbsp sugar
1 drop peppermint extract
crushed candy canes, marshmallows (optional toppings)
Whisk together milk, cocoa powder, sugar, and peppermint extract in a small pot.
Heat mixture over the stove on medium heat until it bubbles . Whisk occasionally.
Serve in mugs or latte glasses and add toppings if desired.
