Dark Chocolate Peppermint Hot Chocolate


This time of year, a certain coffee chain releases an onslaught of syrupy, peppermint-flavored drinks it’s enough to give Buddy the Elf a sugar high. Though our version is still sweet, real dark chocolate balances out the saccharine tendency of this beverage and a pinch of salt serves to perfectly bring out all the flavors. Garnish with real whipped cream, crushed peppermint candies and a sprig of mint leaves for an impressive presentation of an already-delectable drink.



In a heavy bottomed saucepan, heat 2 cups of milk until scalding. Add chocolate chips, peppermint candies and salt and whisk until combined. Add remaining milk, heat and serve.
