Peppermint hot chocolate mini muffins

December 13, 2016

Peppermint hot chocolate on a cold snowy day, yes please!! What says cozy more than that..so I created mini muffins to go along with that hot chocolate and they are so yummy.. The white chocolate drizzle adds a nice sweet finish to them, and here’s a bonus, no added sugar to this recipe 🙂 Only 30 calories and 1 smart point each. Bake these up this holiday season and you won’t be disappointed!
