Rum and Peppermint White Hot Chocolate - A boozy twist on the classic with refreshing peppermint flavor! So creamy and not too sweet and perfect for winter!
Place the milk, salt and cornstarch in a saucepan. Whisk to dissolve the cornstarch. Add the white chocolate, vanilla and peppermint extract.
Heat over medium-high heat, while whisking regularly to melt the white chocolate.
Pour into two mugs. Top with marshmallows, whipped cream and crushed candy cane. Enjoy!
The cornstarch is optional. I add the cornstarch because I used an oil based peppermint extract. The cornstarch helps to make the white hot chocolate creamier, and prevent the peppermint extract from floating on top of the drink.
If you use a alcohol based peppermint extract, you can skip the cornstarch if you choose.
