We are not coffee drinkers at our house so our hot beverage of choice is usually hot chocolate.  With the cold, cold weather that seems to be blanketing our nation we’ve been drinking lots of it!
Today I want to introduce you to a concept though that may just take your hot chocolate drinking to a whole new level.  My favorite flavor combination of the season is white chocolate and peppermint.  You might have noticed that if you’ve read my blog for very long as I have a lot of white chocolate and peppermint recipes (see below for some of my favorites).

Today’s hot chocolate is made with my favorite flavor combination – white chocolate and peppermint.  To make the hot chocolate I actually used the white chocolate and peppermint kisses that come out every holiday season.  I buy bags of them and then hoard them so they last me until the next holiday season.

I heated a glass of milk and then added in about 6-8 chopped up kisses  (depending on how sweet you like it).  Stir until the kisses melt.  You can do this on the stove top or in the microwave.

You t hen have a very pretty cup of peppermint white hot chocolate.

Then of course you must top it with some whip cream and some more chopped up kisses.

And then comes the good part.  O.K., so peppermint white  hot chocolate with whip cream is good too but we are going to make it even better.

You are going to add a scoop of peppermint ice cream into the hot chocolate.  Yes, ice cream!  I was first introduced to this idea of ice cream in your hot chocolate by some friends years ago.  It changed my life.  The original version I had was regular hot chocolate with a scoop of Tillamook Brown Cow Ice Cream (a combination of white chocolate and chocolate)  It was amazing.

I think you might just find this version amazing too.  The peppermint ice cream just makes it creamier and more pepperminty!

The flavor combinations are pretty much endless.  Just imagine!  So please trust me on this one.  You want to try this.

If you can’t find the Peppermint/White Chocolate kisses you can make your own white hot chocolate using this recipe and then add in some peppermint extract and maybe a bit of pink food coloring if you want.

What flavor combination are you going to try?

    I HAVE to show this to my 12 year old daughter when she gets home from school. These are all of her favorite loves! Just need to shop for the goodies, first! Never heard of hot chocolate floats, but I’m curious. Will just have to be mint-free for me. Never liked mint ice cream. Thanks so much for sharing!
