You know the only thing better than peppermint white hot chocolate? Pink peppermint white hot chocolate!

This time of year my Starbucks drink of choice is the peppermint white mocha which is pretty much the best thing ever but when I’m not feeling coffee, I go for the peppermint white hot chocolate but their version has nothing on this pretty pink one!

Before Nicole and I started this Thirsty Thursday thing I had no idea hot chocolate was so easy to make from scratch but seriously, if you haven’t done it, you need to. I’m always so disappointed in the white hot chocolate mixes but this homemade version makes up for it.

Nicole made Peppermint Hot Chocolate Truffle Balls which would go perfectly with this hot chocolate!
