Homemade Peppermint Hot Chocolate recipe, perfect for Christmas.

I’m so excited because it’s finally my favorite time of year! Not only because I get bake a ton of delicious holiday treats, but everywhere I go I can get my favorite drink which is peppermint hot chocolate. I love the peppermint hot chocolate from McDonalds (check out the picture I shared on Instagram last year of me and my favorite drink!), it’s so good. I think I went there almost everyday last year just to get a hot chocolate.

Well I won’t have to go out in the cold this year to enjoy my favorite drink because I can now make my own Homemade Peppermint Hot Chocolate. And the best part is that this delicious peppermint hot chocolate is guilt-free because I used Sweet’N Low and low-fat milk.  And it’s super easy to make and perfect for a night in watching Christmas movies!

 I used low-fat milk but you can also use 2 %, or whole milk but if you want to keep this drink “skinny” I would suggest using low-fat milk.

 You can top this peppermint hot chocolate with mini marshmallows like I did or you can add whipped cream and SPRINKLE with crushed peppermint candies, which is makes this drink super fun around the holidays.
