Our holiday season is full of parties and visits with family and friends. It’s a time to reconnect with our loved ones and catch up over extravagant meals, decadent desserts and more baked goods than you can possible imagine. I love holiday baking, but sometimes I would rather sit on the couch and hang out with my friends than spend the entire day in the kitchen. For those days, I’ve come up with a ridiculously simple mint hot chocolate that totally hits the spot. Rich and creamy, silky and indulgent, this hot chocolate tastes like it came from a gourmet coffee shop, but it only takes 2 ingredients and less than 5 minutes to make at home!
This hot chocolate recipe really couldn’t be any simpler, and the secret is in these new Nestle Toll House DelightFulls filled morsels. Each new morsel has the same rich chocolate taste as the original Toll House morsels you know and love, but the DelightFulls are slightly larger than standard sized and are filled with one of four yummy flavors – mint, caramel, peanut butter or cherry. We used mint to make our hot chocolate, but I bet the caramel would be awesome, too!
The Best Mint Hot Chocolate Recipe Ever
- 1 cup Nestle Toll House Mint DelightFulls chips
- 4 cups Skim Milk
- Whipped cream for garnish
- Heat milk in a saucepan over low heat - DO NOT allow to boil!
- Add mint morsels and stir until melted and mixture is smooth.
- Remove from heat, carefully ladle into mugs, and garnish with coarsely chopped mint morsels and whipped cream if desired.
I can’t get over how cool the DelightFulls filled morsels look when they’re chopped in half! They have the perfect ratio of mint to chocolate flavor, and to be honest, I couldn’t stop popping them straight out of the bag and into my mouth. They’re that good!
Now that we’ve tried the new Nestle Toll House DelightFull filled morsels in our hot chocolate recipe, I’m looking forward to trying more baking recipes with them as well. The DelightFulls morsels hold their shape when you bake with them, and can be used whole, cut in half, or coarsely chopped for a burst of flavor and color in baked goods. I can’t wait to try these in my favorite brownie recipe!
