Keto Peppermint Hot Chocolate

I love this Keto Peppermint Hot Chocolate because chocolate and peppermint are just such a great pairing. Who doesn’t love hot chocolate anyway? What is not to love? It’s chocolate and it’s hot. I mean YUM!!!

Keto Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Bakers Chocolate and Cocoa Powder

I prefer to use unsweetened bakers chocolate and cocoa powder. I just think that it makes a smoother hot chocolate. You can, of course, omit the peppermint from this recipe and it will be just as delicious. However, I think that the peppermint emulsion just gives it that extra special little something that puts it over the top.

Keto Hot Chocolate

Creamy and Rich

I have always preferred to use milk in my hot chocolate rather than water. I just think that it makes a much richer and creamier hot chocolate. Plus, to keep it keto I use almond milk instead of regular milk. This hot chocolate is creamy and rich with a hint of peppermint. It will make you feel like you’re in a winter wonderland. This recipe makes two servings so you can snuggle up with a special someone, get all cozy, and enjoy a cold winter night.
