Hot Cocoa with Peppermint Marshmallow Cookies

HotChocolate-044-2

I’m sitting in my living room, by the light of the tree, sipping on a mug of creamy, rich hot chocolate. Something I have not done since long before I gave up refined sugar, processed foods, and most dairy. I don’t know why I never thought to make it before now. It’s so simple and while I’m sure there are plenty of other recipes out there, none of them include Peppermint Marshmallow Cookies that melt just like those little artificial marshmallows that came in the powdered hot cocoa packets we used to drink. This drink is comforting on a cold day or at the end of a long day chasing around a 2 year old.

Asher has never tasted chocolate milk, let alone hot chocolate, so on a blustery day last week I decided to make him some as a special treat. He took one sip and was over it! He’s not much of a sweets kid, but does love his chocolate so I was surprised! Probably better for all of us because once he likes something, he asks for it over and over (and over and over) again. Maybe I’ll try it again when we’re up in Tahoe after Christmas and he’s been out in the snow all day. For now though, I’ll happily finish up the leftovers!

    Where do I find Guar Gum free coconut milk? Even the organic in the can has it.
