Gourmet Hot Chocolate Recipe ~ Mint Edition

Mint Hot Chocolate Recipe ~ Without Powdered Milk or Mixes

Previously, Ellie shared how to make hot chocolate without powdered milk.  That recipe is yummy and we love it still.

But today I have a gourmet hot chocolate recipe to share.

I love all things mint and this hot chocolate is no exception.  For this recipe I converted the ingredients from our previous mix to make 1 serving at a time.  That way you can mix it as you go.

Good quality cocoa powder makes it that much more decadent and whipping cream adds more creaminess.
