Minty-Chocolate Indecency

What am I reading now? Peasant Queen (Cheri Chesley)

Annnd . . . how do I like it so far? I like Krystal's personality: spunky, resourceful, caring. She's stuck in an engagement to the town idiot, but considers her options and makes a choice that will be hard, revealing her courage and strength. She doesn't actually get to put her choice into action. Because she's kidnapped. Yes, there is a love story in here--with a few glitches.

Here's a great recipe for all of you who like hot chocolate.

Minty-Chocolate Indecency
6 cups milk
1 bag chocolate chips
1 bag white chocolate chips (if you use milk chocolate only use 1/2 bag of these--too sweet!)
scant 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
1 cup whipping cream
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
sugar to taste (1-2 tablespoons)

Whip cream and cocoa powder to stiff peaks. Add sugar to taste.

Combine milk, peppermint extract and both bags of chips, Warm over low head and stir constantly until melted and combined. Do not boil.

Serving Suggestion:
Turn off all the lights, except the ones on the Christmas tree, and serve hot with chocolate-y whipped cream on top.
Happy Recipe Countdown to Christmas!
