Peppermint Hot Chocolate

I subscribe to Everyday Food magazine, and I always make several recipes from each month's edition. It is by far the most useful cooking magazine I've ever read. The December issue included a recipe for peppermint hot chocolate and I made myself a cup yesterday while my daughter was taking a nap. It was sinfully delicious, smooth and minty and rich. I could barely finish my cup, and for me that says a lot. I usually out eat everyone when it comes to rich, chocolately items. This cocoa is definitely a drink to savor. I sat on the couch in my unusually quiet house and sipped and was in heaven. Here's what to do to make a single serving:

Peppermint Hot Chocolate

1 cup milk
1T plus 1t cocoa powder
1/8 cup chocolate chips
1 peppermint stick crushed

Add milk to a small saucepan and whisk in cocoa until combined. Add chips and crushed peppermint candy and cook over medium heat until chips and candy have melted and milk is as warm as you like it.

This sounds like a yummy drink to have on a nice cold night while sitting in front of the fireplace and reading a good book.
