Peppermint Hot Chocolate is my hubby’s favorite of the season! He loves everything peppermint at this time of year and hot chocolate is no exception. Over the weekend we had some very cold weather and snow so it was a perfect time to make a pot of this delicious and creamy peppermint hot chocolate.

In the recipe it calls for peppermint oil and I used my doTERRA peppermint essential oil but if you do not have peppermint essential oil you can substitute and use peppermint extract.
