This is a great after dinner drink or night cap, so simple but really yummy. Found in an old English Hot Beverage Book.
- Heat milk but do not boil.
- Dissolve peppermints & marshmallows in milk.
- Whisk until fully blended & frothy.
Nice and fluffy! I am not sure what size a standard marshmallow is, but we get them about 1 inch large and I used 4 for 200 ml of milk and that filled our mugs. Used Japanese peppermint oil, two drops.
Tasty! I used two After Eight mints and they added just the right amount of sweetness and flavor. Didn't have any marshmallows.
I made this with the peppermint essence, but would like to try it with the candy canes soon. This was so smooth and creamy. The warmed milk was a nice relaxing sweet treat. The kids weren't so sure about the idea of warm milk, but I assured them it tasted like candy. I know why my mother gave us warm milk at night now, as my kids fell fast asleep shortly afterwards. Bonus treat! Made and Reviewed for Kid-Friendly Tag - Thanks! :)
