Peppermint whipped cream and tasty hot chocolate in minutes!
We’ve been a little snowed in, here in Massachusetts. For the most part, my seven year old has been well occupied with games, coloring, cartoons, and more. But, we still like to take little breaks and make something fun. If it’s edible, that’s even better! During our most recent blizzard, we enjoyed some easy peppermint whipped cream and even easier hot chocolate.
