It’s almost Christmas and the weather is cooling off quite a bit here in the Midwest. But sometimes hot chocolate just doesn’t do the trick to warm these old bones. If you’re looking for good holiday drink to get you all toasty on the inside, you’ve come to the right place.

The hardest part of this drink is getting the peppermint to stick to the rim of the cup. It’s a real pain in the butt. I tried water, but that didn’t work so you’ll have to use maple syrup.

Third–rim your glass
Honestly, this part is completely unnecessary, but it makes for a great presentation. My glass turned out really sticky though because I got so frustrated with the peppermint not sticking that I basically rolled the entire glass in maple syrup.
