I'm also a big fan of Starbucks' peppermint hot chocolate, so while brewing some tea and making some hot chocolate on two separate occasions, I wondered if I could make my own version of peppermint hot chocolate.
I started by brewing the peppermint tea, and then using that tea to pour over the hot chocolate packet instead of using just hot water.
It was so delicious! This might be a new classic Christmas hot beverage for me!
Best served with whipped cream :)
