What You Will Need To Make Peppermint White Hot Chocolate
Milk. When it comes to hot chocolate, almost any kind of milk will do. So go ahead and heat up whole cow’s milk, or plant-based milk like almond, oat, soy, or cashew milk
Heavy Cream. Of course, heavy cream is 100% optional, but if you love rich and super creamy hot chocolate, then heavy cream is the way to go.
White Chocolate. I used and highly recommend chocolate chips for this decadent white hot chocolate, and it turned out pretty good.
Pure Vanilla Extract. Want to take your next white hot chocolate to the next level? Add a little bit of pure vanilla extract, or better yet scrap the paste from a vanilla bean pod, we’re talking some kind of wonderful!
Crushed Candy Cane: Adding crushed candy cane to the rim of the mug you’re serving the hot chocolate is an easy and whimsical way to add a bit of much-needed holiday spirit.
