I’m a huge fan of hot chocolate so naturally when all the festive menus are released I am all for trying all the different hot chocolates that the coffee shops have to offer. Speaking of which have you tried the Costa Orange Hot Chocolate this year? It tastes amazing! However all these drinks can become quite expensive so I have decided to create my own luxury hot chocolate using peppermint sticks.

I used hemp milk as suggested by Lauren from Britton Loves as it gives the hot chocolate much more of a creamier taste and three heaped teaspoons of Cadbury’s Drinking Chocolate. I microwaved it for about 3 minutes because you are wanting it to be steaming hot. I added a capful of peppermint essence before squirting some cream on top or you could even go all out and whisk up your own. Finally, I added the peppermint stick and some dark chocolate shavings. Let me tell you now, this tasted delicious! It wasn’t too overpowering with the mint flavour and it just tasted like Christmas in a mug. Edd even liked it which says a lot as he doesn’t usually like mint flavoured things.

What’s your favourite flavour of hot chocolate? Please try this and let me know what you think!
