The long winter is a perfect time to cozy up by the fire with a hot cup of cocoa. But don’t get bored by plain hot chocolate. Try Thin Mint Hot Chocolate!
What could be better than hot chocolate on a cold winter’s day? How about the combination of mint and chocolate in this Thin Mint Hot Chocolate recipe!
If you’re a bit sensitive to dairy, like my kids are, you could always substitute almond, soy, rice or coconut milk for cow’s milk in this recipe too! Then the only dairy is in the Thin Mints!
