Mint White Hot Chocolate

ImageOh.my.goodness. The rain this week was absolutely crazy! But, having to walk through it at school was even worse…everyone was soaking wet from head to toe! A good thing about rain, however, is that you can curl up on the couch or in bed at home. 🙂 Cozy blanket. Rainy weather. Netflix. Oh! Can’t forget that hot drink, and you’re all set for the day. 🙂 I’d usually go for hot chocolate during the cold weather but since St. Patrick’s Day is coming up, I found this great Mint White Hot Chocolate recipe from babble.com! Not only does it look yummy, but the mint color gives the drink a little extra flair. Hope you guys enjoy!

  • 2 cups of milk
  • 2 cups of half and half cream
