I always see cool pins on Pinterest and always wanted someone to invite me to a hot chocolate bar. In my mind, I envisioned this would be perfect for a girls night in on a cold day.
It actually has been colder in Texas and is the season for sweet treats which really aren’t a temptation around this time for me. However, today at work they had a hot chocolate bar everything looked delicious and was laid out wonderfully.
I really wanted to have some hot chocolate with the Andes mints and with a candy cane, but reality set in about the calories and that I would be drinking mostly sugar.
Also, my mind created a butterscotch and a Hershey Kisses version drizzled with extra chocolate. I was really tempted but decided to opt for a healthier version of peppermint hot chocolate.
I made my Du chocolat added milk and made some peppermint tea. After, the tea was finished I removed the tea bags and combined the tea and the hot chocolate to achieve the peppermint taste.
I poured the mixture into my Yeti and I had peppermint cocoa. Which can stay warm for a long time in my Yeti mug. You can also buy sugar-free peppermint mocha creamer if you like to add a little more carbs and a little more sugar to achieve a peppermint mocha flavor.
Overall, I was pleased with my peppermint hot chocolate. I wonder if there are healthier hot chocolate bars available with protein cookies, dark chocolate, real mint, low sugar and carb cocoa . A girl can dream I guess.
