Happy December! I had such a fun weekend, starting with Friday night. I hosted a holiday party for my daughter and 13 of her friends, and I made my highly requested Peppermint Milkshakes. I served several desserts too, but these were the star. With only 3 ingredients, you can not go wrong with this recipe. I am amazed at the super creative peppermint recipes and creations I have seen across the internet, and I am so excited to share with you 10 favorite peppermint recipes and ideas. Here’s to a great month ahead and a joyous, healthy holiday season!

Peppermint Dark Hot Chocolate Mix

Okay…my kids are obsessed with Peppermint Hot Chocolate. The past few weeks we have been visiting Starbucks more than often to savor their craving. Since I have been working on my Christmas list, I decided to create my own homemade version of Peppermint Dark Hot Chocolate Mix that will make the perfect holiday food gift. I used dark chocolate instead of milk or semisweet chocolate, but feel free to use your favorite. It has been said to lower blood pressure, work as a powerful antioxidant and even help release endorphins to boost your mood. It’s super easy and inexpensive to make, and everyone loves it.
