The holiday season always makes me want some hot chocolate. Last year I never got around to making a low carb version of hot chocolate so this year it was on my must make list. I add some peppermint extract to really bring in the holiday flavors. It’s perfect for a cold day! Or in my case, it is perfect in 70+ degree weather when I have to turn the AC on in December. Gotta love South Carolina! Even though it’s warm in S.C. this Low Carb Peppermint Hot Chocolate gets me in the holiday spirit.

3/4 cup equivalent sweetener (powdered or liquid sweetener–I used Swerve Confectioners)
