It’s Ava’s turn to the post on the blog today!
After a failed attempt in the kitchen two weekends ago (she made slow cooker macaroni and cheese), she was a little discouraged, but my baby girl picked herself right back up and headed straight into the kitchen again–wonder where she gets that from? 😉
She made this recipe this past weekend and boy was it ever good!
Even Husband Man liked it and he’s not a big fan of minty chocolate at all.
In Ava’s Words:
“The Minty Hot Chocolate was good. It was the most spectacular hot chocolate in the world and it was so easy to make! Watch and I’ll show you how to make it…..
First, you’re going to take your milk and pour it into the slow cooker.
Then you’re going to take your Ovaltine and pour it in with the milk…..
….give it a good stir.
Then take your vanilla extract and dump it in.
Stir some more 🙂
Lastly, take your peppermint patties and dump them in.
Cover the slow cooker with the lid and cook on low for 2-3 hours. Stir after the first hour to make sure the candy is melting properly.
Mommy put whipped cream and cinnamon sprinkles on ours after it was finished!
It was so very good! Even Eli and daddy had a cup!
See you later alligator!
This drink would be fabulous during the upcoming fall and winter months!
If you aren’t a big mint fan, leave the peppermint patties out of the recipe.
Our family really enjoyed this one and will be making it a lot more once fall rolls around!
