Preparation

  1. Assemble the hot chocolate board: Add the whipped cream, caramel sauce, red and green sprinkles, and chocolate sauce to small bowls of varying sizes and arrange on a large board or serving platter. Place a small spoon in each bowl.
  2. Create a “river” of mini marshmallows diagonally across the center of the board, letting it “flow” around the curve of any bowl in its path. The river should be thickest at the center of the board and taper out at the ends.
  3. Place a large handful each of mini candy canes, mini star cookies, red and green chocolate-coated candies, pirouette cookies, peppermint bark, chocolate-covered pretzel rods, chocolate hazelnut sandwich cookies, mini meringues, brownie bites around the board to fill.
  4. Make the white peppermint hot chocolate: Add the milk, white chocolate, and salt to a medium pot. Bring to a bare simmer over medium heat and stir until the chocolate is melted, 5–10 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat, then stir in 1 teaspoon peppermint extract, adding more peppermint extract to taste.
  5. Serve the white peppermint and classic hot chocolates in mugs with the board.
  6. Enjoy!
