Irish Hot Chocolate

I saw this recipe in a Taste of Home cookbook that I recently received…I hope you like it. Adults, it would be great with a little bit of Bailey’s Irish Cream. Enjoy!

Makes: 6 servings

Here’s what you’ll need:

3 1/2 cups 2% milk
8 oz. White baking chocolate, chopped
1/4-1/2 tsp peppermint extract
2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
8 spearmint or peppermint candies, crushed
Additional crushed candies, optional

Directions:

In a large saucepan, heat milk over medium heat until steaming. Add chocolate, whisk until smooth. Stir in peppermint extract.
In a large bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form. Fold in the crushed candies. Ladle hot chocolate into mugs; dollop with whipped cream.
Sprinkle with additional candies, if desired.
