Peppermint White Hot Chocolate — The cool fall weather makes for the perfect excuse for this Peppermint White Hot Chocolate recipe with champagne marshmallows!
I really only need half an excuse to bust out a sweater and cold weather drinks. But the fact that Houston has seen below 70 degree weather for three days straight now is practically a celebration in and of itself.
To mark the occasion, this Peppermint White Hot Chocolate recipe was a must-make.
Plus, it looks pretty with my champagne marshmallows from Sugarfina, which can also be found at iGourmet.
And I’ve been hoarding these polka dot plate set that Jared’s mom gifted me so now was the perfect time to enjoy them.
Aside from it having the perfect winter tabletop aesthetic, this recipe is also the easiest thing you’ll whip up all winter long.
Not kidding, it only takes 5 seconds of your attention and a slow cooker. Then, you’re all set!
Ingredients Needed To Make Peppermint White Hot Chocolate
Champagne marshmallows — For garnish
How To Make Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate
Combine the whipping cream, milk, vanilla, peppermint, and white chocolate chips in a slow cooker.
On medium to low heat, let it set for 2 1/2 hours in the slow cooker.
Stir occasionally making sure all of the chips are melted.
Once finished, serve with whipped cream and a champagne marshmallow on top for the garnish.
Or you can cut the calories of the whipped cream and just add a marshmallow. It looks (and tastes) great either way!
