Top Review by CandyTX

My 10-year-old daughter LOVES the peppermint hot chocolate from The Egg & I and we're on a quest to find a good substitute at home (she's a hot cocoa snob, I'm afraid). I wanted to find one that she could do most of the work herself. I was her helper, but she was able to do everything except for the pouring into the cup all by herself. It was perfect - and REALLY yummy and rich peppermint chocolate taste. We used 2% milk and it was really silky and smooth. A keeper for sure!
