    MSA's Peppermint Hot Chocolate


    It’s cold outside and one of my favourite ways to warm up is to drink a mug of hot chocolate. I truly believe that hot chocolate is the elixir of my life. After drinking a mug of it I’m deeply comforted and it somehow puts my challenges into perspective. It’s also the perfect snack when I’m hungry and I often find myself buying it from various coffee shops when I’m out and about. I decided to create my own recipe and flavour it with mint syrup. I think it turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself! The combination of peppermint and chocolate is fantastic. I found a great mint syrup from Amazon which I’ve linked below; I believe you can use it to flavour coffee, cocktails, and smoothies, so it’s a versatile ingredient to have.

    I plan to drink several mugs of MSA’s peppermint hot chocolate in the next few weeks as I wrap my Christmas gifts. I hope you give this recipe a try and I’d love to know what you think of it.

    • 100 mls Elmlea Double Cream Alternative (this is a double cream alternative, but you can use regular double cream instead)

    • 20 grams Plain Chocolate
    • 1/2 Tsp Cocoa Powder
    • 2.5 Tsp Mint Syrup
    • Marshmallows



    1. Put the Elmlea, milk, plain chocolate, and cocoa into a small saucepan.
    2. Bring to a gentle simmer and stir until the chocolate is melted and the milk is hot (be careful not to over boil the milk, you just want to bring it to a temperature that is suitable for drinking)
    3. Remove the saucepan from the heat, add the mint syrup, and stir
    4. Sprinkle some marshmallows on top and enjoy.
