Peppermint Marshmallow Hot Chocolate in Your Favourite Kilner Jar

There is nothing better to keep warm during those cold winter nights than a sweet comforting cup of hot chocolate.

There are so many delicious flavours you can add to cocoa, but our favourite has to be peppermint.

Peppermint Marshmallow Hot Chocolate in Your Favourite Kilner Jar

You will need

Per cup of hot chocolate

2 candy canes

Peppermint flavouring

Hot chocolate powder

Milk

Marshmallows

Method

Heat one and a half cups of milk, in a small saucepan over a low heat.

After a couple of minutes, add 2 tablespoons of hot chocolate and stir frequently.

While the milk is gently heating, crush the candy canes using a kitchen towel and a rolling pin. Add the crushed sweet to the hot chocolate.

Next add a couple of drops of peppermint flavouring.

Once the hot chocolate begins to simmer, remove from the heat. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes.

Pour the hot chocolate into your favourite Kilner jar, drop in a couple of marshmallows  and enjoy.

TOP TIP: Add a couple marshmallows on the side for more sweetness.

Do not pour hot liquids into cold Kilner jars!
