Frozen Peppermint Hot Chocolate

The fire is roaring – the snow is coming down – the lights on the Christmas tree are twinkling. This is that special time of the year when we can relax and enjoy some yummy recipes, like the grinch hot chocolate 25 days of holiday recipes or the classic hot chocolate cake 25 days of holiday recipes.

Time to get out the blender, grab the hot chocolate mix, milk, ice, and candy canes to whip up a special wintery drink – Frozen Peppermint Hot Chocolate

The ingredient list is very simple – hot chocolate mix, milk, ice, and whipped topping if you like. The only key to this delicious drink is a good blender.

Add the hot chocolate mix to the blender, we used Mint flavored mix (found in the coffee aisle at Walmart), but if you can’t find it at your store, you can add a teaspoon of Peppermint Extract. Then add the milk and about 3 cups of ice.
