Hey Ladies !! 

Hey ladies it's that season cold weather and festive cheer with family n friends. I thought it would be great if I shared my favorite party and gathering food and drink. They are fast and simple to make and great for any crowed or party you go to this holiday season.

In a saucepan, combine the cream, milk, sugar, and salt and heat over medium-low heat. When the cream mixture just begins to steam, add the chopped chocolate, and stir, until melted. Stir in the peppermint oil. Divide the hot chocolate among mugs and top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
