    not realy my thing
    great easy recipe. I used soy milk in place of the heavy cream and milk. Equal parts, and light soy, too. very creamy and delectable!
    Fabulous hot chocolate! I didn't want saturated fat overload so I made it with 1% milk and garnished it with whipped cream. Delicious!
    this recipe was amazing! i ran out of peppermint oil, so i used it without and it was still great. best hot chocolate i've ever had!
    If you're lifting an eyebrow at all the raves, lift no longer. This is fantastic and will become a Christmas tree-decorating, Christmas Eve staple in this household. Yummmm....
    Amazing, the best hot chocolate I've ever had. I topped it with marshmallows instead of whipped cream, which melted beautifully into the chocolate. Next time I'll probably use more milk and less cream, because it is really heavy and rich... one cup will leave you completely satisfied.
    This recipe is unbelievably rich and creamy. By far the best hot chocolate I have ever tasted.
    I found this recipe to be very heavy on the stomach. I would reccomend using light cream vs. heavy. The overall chocolate-mint flavor was good.
    they were sooooooooooooooooooooooooo goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooddddddd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This is really good hot cocoa and super easy!!!
    Delicious! This is a very sweet and heavy hot chocolate. For an adult version substitute the peppermint for a little peppermint schnapps!
    Great drink...even better if you make it about a half hour ahead, then reheat it (it gives the chocolate time to melt COMPELTELY---mine had little unmelted shards immediately after I made it).
    I have not made this yet, but it looks so easy to make and it looks delicious. Thank you for giving me this great recipe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
