Peppermint Hot Cocoa
Since it is exactly one month until Xmas, I thought I'd post this festive recipe.
1 peppermint teabag
1/2 cup of boiling water
1-2 teaspoons honey or maple syrup
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 cup milk of choice
Steep the teabag in the hot water for 5 minutes. In the meantime, place the honey and cocoa in a mug. When 5 minutes have elapse, add the hot peppermint tea to the mug; stir to dissolve the cocoa and honey. Heat the milk in a pot on the stove until it starts to lightly bubble, then immediately remove from heat and add to the mug. Stir to mix.
Sip by the fire while visions of sugarplums dance in your head.
