Peppermint Hot Chocolate Float
Hello Friendly Friend and welcome to my recipe for a Peppermint Hot Chocolate Float. This is an easy recipe of Peppermint hot chocolate topped with a scoop of chocolate ice cream. So so good!
On Sunday evening, after having spent a lovely few days with my brother and his family who are visiting from Canada and with my parents who have snow-birded in, the hubs and I took the kids for a walk to see all of our neighbors’ homes glittering with lights. M loves little lights and it was so fun to watch her get excited with each house we passed. J, well, he just loves to run. So he ran ahead to the next house and then back to tell us what we would soon see (and what we could already see but pretended to not be able to see).
It was a cool-ish day for a change here in Central Florida.
But not cool enough for hot chocolate. So we had these Peppermint Hot Chocolate Floats instead.
- 2 tbsp candy cane hot chocolate powder
- 8 ounces hot water
- a big scoop of chocolate ice cream (at least ⅓ of a cup)
- Measure the candy cane hot chocolate powder into a mug. Add the hot water. Stir until all or most of the candy cane pieces are dissolved. Top with the scoop of ice cream. Don't stir. Just let it float on top and slowly melt in as you sip.
