Mint Hot Chocolate

Doug has been out of town for the past couple of days which means that I’m on bus duty in the morning. There’s nothing I love more than rushing out of the house in the freezing cold to wait for the bus! So, I’ve been experimenting with different hot chocolates. My love affair with the Cocoa Latte continues. I love pouring in the ingredients and waiting for the smooth chocolaty goodness!

Yesterday I used Andes Mint chips to make the most velvety hot chocolate … ever! It may or may not have helped that I loaded it with whipped cream. But the whole thing was pretty much a hug in a mug! If your grocery store doesn’t carry the Andes Mint chips, just chop up some Andes Mints. They’re probably cheaper to buy whole since they’re always on sale this time of year.

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for warmer mornings … at least until school gets out for Christmas!

  1. Yum! I like how you called it a hug in a mug! I am totally a hot chocolate in the morning kinda gal – that 5 minutes of just me curled up on the couch with some rich and sweet deliciousness helps me face the rest of the day. I’ll definitely be trying this recipe out.

     
  2. sounds delish!! i will be getting the Andes Mint Chips the next time i go to the store. i agree with sharleen…a good cup of cocoa makes the day sweeter, for sure.

     
  3. Now I have to try that I finally broke down and got a cocoa latte a few months ago and just pulled it out this week. The kids really like it. I just wish it had a bigger capacity.

     
  4. Our Cocoa Latte has been getting a workout lately with all this 30 degree weather we have been having…plus who knew all our children were hot chocolate lovers?!? This has been a delightful surprise this season! We even make batches with soy milk for our dairy-unfriendly gal and she has been loving it! Iw ill have to try the Andes Mint chips next!

     
  5. I guess I need to ask Santa for one!! That sounds yummy!

  7. I’m not a fan of Andes mints as a piece of chocolate but now melted into a steaming mug of hot chocolate, that’s a different story! Thanks for sharing!
