Minty Snow Flake Cocoa

Sunday morning when we woke up there was a nice thick blanket of snow on the ground. Needless to say, my daughter came running through the house (much too early to speak of) to inform of us of this winter wonderland. She begged for a good hour to go outside and build a snowman. We gave in pretty easily, but I knew I had to make something that was going to warm us up from the inside out when we returned to the indoors. This white hot chocolate in the crock pot worked perfectly. I just put it on before we went outside, came in to stir it a couple of times and by the time we were done playing….. it was ready! (BTW my daughter helped to name it…. don’t you just love it?!?!)   Here is how I did it:

  • 2 cups of heavy whipping cream
  • 6 cups of 2% milk
  • 1 (12 ounce) package of white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pure peppermint extract
  • mini marshmallows (for garnish)
  • miniature candy canes (for garnish)

Pour the whipping cream and milk into a 3 quart crock pot. Add the white chocolate chips. Cook on low for 2 – 2 1/2 hours stirring occasionally to mix it up well. About 10 minutes before serving add both of the extracts and stir to incorporate. Ladle into heat proof mugs and top with marshmallows. Place a candy cane on the side by using the curve of it to hook over the top. Use the candy cane to stir the hot chocolate as you drink it.
