A dairy-free, creamy and minty chocolate festive treat for your sweet tooth this season.

This peppermint hot chocolate is one of the best hot chocolates I’ve ever had! It is the perfect ratio of sweet and chocolatey, with just a hint of peppermint. I feel like everyone can agree that there is is just something about a hot cup of cocoa that brings back some of the best childhood memories.

This hot chocolate is dairy free and processed sugar free! So you can feel good about you and your kiddos drinking a mug or two of this delicious chocolate elixir.

If you want to take this hot chocolate up a notch I would highly suggest a good dollop of coconut whip and crushed up candy canes, because why not!

  1. I have cacao nibs … and I just can’t seem to melt them correctly or use them in a recipe I like as a chip. Any suggestions? Does the powder taste better? Can I grind the nibs to powder? Love your videos and blog!

    Thank you,
    Dawn

  2. Ah, I remember in my childhood, my mother would make my sisters and I the best hot cocoa where we’d also dunk marshmallows that were the size of our heads into the mugs! Best holiday drink in the world! I love that this take on hot chocolate features peppermint and is full of healthy ingredients!
