Peppermint White Hot Chocolate

Makes 2


Whipped Cream

1 cup organic heavy whipping cream

1/2 teaspoon organic vanilla extract

7 grams (1/2 teaspoon) organic cane sugar


Cocoa

4 cups organic milk

30 grams (2 tablespoons) organic cane sugar

30 grams (3 tablespoons) organic white chocolate for melting (find here)

2 teaspoons organic peppermint flavor (like Frontier Co-Op)


Organic milk chocolate shavings, for topping

Method To make the whipped cream: In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with whisk attachment, add the heavy cream, vanilla extract and sugar. Whisk on low, and gradually speed up mixer to high as whipped cream thickens. Whisk until stiff peaks form.


To make the cocoa: In a medium pot, add the milk, sugar, white chocolate, and peppermint flavor. Put over high heat and whisk to melt the chocolate and combine everything. Heat until it reaches 140 to 160°F degrees on a drink thermometer.


Pour hot cocoa into mugs, top with whipped cream and top with chocolate shavings or marshmallows.
