"Christmas in a cup"

Who knew taking a picture of hot chocolate could be such a task? Seriously, this was the best I could do. The cream and candy cane went all over the place. However who can resist a delicious hot chocolate in this cold weather? This peppermint, white chocolate and candy cane hot chocolate is literally Christmas in a cup.

I'd love to tell you that I put one tea spoon of peppermint extract and 3 cups of milk but for me it went a little more like this...

Fill your most festive cup of with milk, then pour this into a sauce pan add 4/5 chunks of white chocolate, if you want yours more chocolatey then add an extra chunk. Drizzle in a little peppermint extract and a some vanilla extract and stir until chocolate is melted and milk is hot. (Do not let chocolate burn at the bottom and do not let milk boil.)

Now for the fun part, crush your candy canes, I found the best way to crush them was to knock them on a hard surface (still in packet), it is a little fiddly and tricky to get out but it works. Make sure you prepare your crushed candy cane before hand as once you've putted the whipped cream on it all starts melting very quickly. You can add whatever you like to your hot chocolate but all I added was some crushed candy cane and whipped cream however, some grated chocolate or marsh mellows would be a nice little extra.

I hope you've enjoyed this post, I didn't want it to be a precise recipe because if you know me, I never really follow recipes as such. I just throw stuff together and hope for the best. Let me know if you give it a go, oh and one last thing. Don't forget to take a snap of it!
