made at home: spiced peppermint white hot chocolate

Spiced Peppermint White Hot Chocolate
  • 1 cup of white chocolate chips
  • 10-12 peppermints 
  • 3 cups of coconut milk (or other desired milk)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of pure vanilla abstract
  • 3 teaspoons of sea salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper 

  Bring the milk, peppermints, and spices over medium-high heat on the stove top. Take off the heat right before it is about to boil, then stir in the white chocolate chips until fully melted. Pour into a mug, top with whipped cream and crushed peppermints. 

  I have never really been the biggest fan of hot chocolate. It was always one of those "a couple times in the season" sort of drinks for me, but then I realized all of the spices and flavors I could develop to make a hot chocolate "my own". With Christmas right around the corner, I decided to go for a seasonal flavor, peppermint (and mixed with some sea salt and a bit of spice). Not only is this drink rich and wintery, but it's also the prettiest shade of pink, which won me over for this recipe even more.  


  1. That looks so lovely! It's such a gorgeous shade of pink!
    I bet it tastes even better than it looks. I will definitely be trying this out!

  2. You can make that at hope. This is my favorite Christmas drink


  3. Omgosh, I'm so gonna make this!! Bookmarked I hope
    to deliver a good mug of goods :P Xx

  4. Mmm it looks delicious! If only it weren't so hot here, I would make it in a flash. I will be sure to bookmark this recipe for the wintertime here in australia!

    I like how you used coconut milk. I experimented with a vegan hot chocolate recipe a while back using coconut milk, and it tastes so creamy and heavenly!

  5. I am drinking some hot chocolate right now, but it is definitely store-bought and probably doesn't taste as good as this.


  6. Yum! This sounds so decadent! I definitely started my day off with some hot chocolate today.
