Besides Eggnog, here is one for chocolate lovers – peppermint hot chocolate.
1 1/2 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
6 oz. bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3 drops peppermint oil
Sweetened whipped cream and chocolate shavings, for garnish
In a saucepan, combine the cream, milk, sugar, and salt and heat over medium-low heat. When the cream mixture just begins to steam, add the chopped chocolate, and stir, until melted. Stir in the peppermint oil. Divide the hot chocolate among mugs and top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
