PEPPERMINT-BARK ICE CREAM FLOAT
Serves 4 to 6
½ cup cocoa powder
½ cup sugar
4 oz. dark chocolate
½ tsp. kosher salt
2 cups whole milk
1 pint peppermint or peppermint-bark ice cream
1. In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine cocoa powder, sugar, chocolate and salt.
2. In a medium-size saucepan on medium heat, bring milk to a near-scalding boil. Pour milk immediately over the bowl of cocoa, sugar, chocolate and salt. Allow it to sit for 1 minute. Whisk slowly to combine. Continue whisking until mixture is evenly combined and silky smooth. (If you are worried about lumps, pass it through a fine-mesh strainer.)
3. Pour hot chocolate evenly into mugs, scoop ice cream on top, and garnish with a candy cane or peppermint stick.
