Today’s offering is not as girlie as usual. With Winter refusing to GTFO I figured something warm was called for. Yes, I realize it is Mardi Gras, but some of y’all are homebound due to more of that evul frozen white shit that fell from the clouds. So I figured a rich, warm drink would be far more appreciated that a frozen one.
Hot Peppermint Patty
- 2 Cups whole milk
- 3 oz. Bittersweet chocolate, chopped
- 2 Tbsp. Godiva liqueur
- 1 Drop peppermint extract
- Splash of whiskey
Whisk all but the whiskey in a saucepan over medium heat until chocolate is melted and well-mixed, being careful not to boil. Pour into two large mugs and top with marshmallows if you wish.
You can also use a peppermint candy cane if you have any left over from the holidays. But that’s a big “IF”.
