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 because it is the perfect ratio of sweet and chocolate with just a hint of peppermint. I feel like everyone can agree that theirs is just something about a hot cup of cocoa that brings back some of the best childhood memories.
This hot chocolate is made with zero dairy or processed sugar 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!
