Cold day. Wanted hot chocolate. Came up with this recipe.
1 cup milk
1/4 cup chocolate chips (I prefer semi-sweet)
1 large spring of fresh mint
bruse the mint by rubbing it around in your hands until the leaves are smoooshed and you can really start to smell the mint. Add mint, chocolate chips, and milk to a microwave-safe mug.
Microwave for 1-3 minutes, stirring after every minute. When the chocolate chips are melted and the mixture is hot, let sit 3-5 minutes to let the mint steep.
The more you bruise the mint, the more minty the flavor will be.
