Festive Flavours: Peppermint White Hot Chocolate!

Oh the weather outside is definitely frightful …

It’s currently -15° outside with no hope in sight of the temperature rising. Luckily, I have the pleasure of spending the day indoors. With frosted windows and snow covered skylights, there isn’t much light coming through, so I’ve lit a few candles and taken up a spot next to the fireplace to write this post!

Every year, I ask myself why I still live in a place where it snows for half the year when I am so clearly a summer girl longing for sun, surf and sand! It is definitely my dream to move away from this picture perfect frozen countryside to a wonderful island paradise. Until then, I’ve got no choice but to stick to my three cardinal rules for staying warm in the winter:

1. Baths – On those days where I get home and feel chilled to the bone, I warm myself up by taking a long and relaxing bath. I’ll throw in a bath bomb and can lay in the tub forever; blissfully unaware of how much time has passed. Once I close my eyes, it’s as if time has stopped, and all I can think about is how amazing it feels to be immersed in the hot water!

2. Robe, Sweaters, Socks & Slippers – I absolutely CANNOT live without my cozy fleece robe in the winter! I love to cuddle up by the fire on chilly nights while wearing it along with a pair of comfy slippers! I am obsessed with Happy Feet slippers and have been wearing them for years! They’re super cozy and look incredibly cute! For days I spend at home, I love to wear warm, oversized sweaters with either thigh/knee high socks! It’s a cute and fashionable look that is easy to put together!

3. Hot Drinks – Ok, this one is everybody’s favourite. These drinks warm you up from the inside out and act as hand warmers in the process! I love anything and everything from coffee, tea, cider and of course, hot chocolate! Christmas may be over, but I still like to add a little holiday twist to everything I make. So today, I’ll be sharing with you my easy recipe for a festive peppermint white hot chocolate!

Peppermint is easily one of the most popular holiday flavours! It pairs so well with chocolate and coffee and has become a winter staple in our household. It’s quick and easy, and the perfect thing to make for friends and family! I like to have some ready when I’m expecting company. It’s a great way to welcome your guests in from the cold! And of course, you get to have some as well 😉
