3-Minute Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Tis’ the Season for hot chocolate. I bet you are sipping on some right now, aren’t you? If you answered no, I am going to go ahead and assume your store was out of hot chocolate because with the cold weather, everyone needs some in a mug and in their hands at all times! So if you don’t have any right now and wondering how long it’d take you to make some, I am going to let you in on a little secret! I am partnering with International Delight today to share with a 3-Minute Peppermint Hot Chocolate recipe.

Wait, just 3 minutes? Oh, yes! It’s delicious and a recipe that even Santa will enjoy!

The Holidays Made Tasty with International Delight

International Delight makes it easy to enjoy delicious goodness in a cup even during the holidays. Whether it’s your coffee that needs a bit of holiday cheer, the need for some good old fashioned egg nog, or even a nice big cup of hot cocoa, they have you covered!

New this year is International Delight Milk Hot Chocolate and Dark Hot Chocolate. Both are pre-made hot chocolate mixes you refrigerate. When you are ready to enjoy just pour some into a microwave safe mug, pop it into the microwave, and heat for 45 seconds. The next thing you do is enjoy it!

While they are both delicious, the Dark Chocolate Hot Chocolate is my favorite!
