Recipe Box, Peppermint White Hot Chocolate and White Chocolate Peppermint Treats

The featured flavor on the December Paint Bucket

{my monthly bucket list of recipe inspirations}

is White Chocolate Peppermint,

perfect for dreaming of sugar plum fairies,

Santa Claus, sparkly trees and a snowy white Christmas!

Let’s start with a steaming mug of hot chocolate,

topped with whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup…

Or even better, a mug of Peppermint White Hot Chocolate

with a mound of whipped cream

sprinkled with white chocolate peppermint bark!

You can make this cozy comfy treat in under 5 minutes with only 5 ingredients 👏

    Mmmnnn, sounds so good. I need to get some of the Ghirardelli peppermint bark also. I just set up my cocoa area on our antique dry sink in the dinning room. Almost done decking the halls, just a bit more to go, whew! Thanks Jenna!

    • What fun to have a Cocoa bar! I am decked out 😂 spent the weekend decorating and had a LOT of help from one of my grandsons, he insisted on getting everything out {it’s clutter city!!} So I am going to do some decluttering while he’s at school today 😂
