This warm and tasty treat is super-simple to whip up with a few basic ingredients, and it literally tastes like a liquid form of my favorite holiday candy! It's been chilly here in San Antonio this week, so this white cocoa is a fantastic way to warm up and wind down after dinner. I poured my cocoa into a festive holiday mug and topped it with whipped cream and crushed peppermint. Don't worry...drinking this only makes you FEEL naughty. I promise you can drink it and still stay on the Nice List!!

That’s it…it only takes about 10 minutes to put this tasty holiday treat together! This stuff is so freaking good...I especially love to have this minty white cocoa with buttered toast. To me, there's nothing more comforting after a stressful day to fire up a favorite Christmas cartoon -- Charlie Brown Christmas, anyone? -- and have a mug of this cocoa and buttered toast. I'm going to try to get by here on Saturday to post once more before Christmas. Just in case, though? I'm going to say Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays now...
