Mint for Minty Witch's Brew

Recipe Ingredients

4 large fresh mint leaves
1/2 cup light whipped cream
1/2 cup lightly packed large fresh mint leaves, torn in half (about 30 leaves)
3 cups 1 percent lowfat chocolate milk
Unsweetened cocoa powder (optional)

Recipe Directions

Heat chocolate milk and 1/2 cup mint over medium-high heat in heavy medium saucepan until hot.

Remove from heat; cover and let stand for 10 minutes.

Remove mint leaves from milk using slotted spoon.

Reheat milk until very hot or just until boiling. Transfer milk to glass blender container. Cover and blend about 20 to 30 seconds or until frothy, then pour into mugs. (Or, pour milk into mugs and froth with a hand-held latte frothing wand.)

To serve, top each mug of hot chocolate with 2 tablespoons whipped cream and a mint leaf. If desired, lightly sprinkle cocoa powder on cream.

Recipe Variation

If desired, omit cream and mint garnish, and float 2 marshmallow "eyes" in each mug of hot chocolate. To make "eyes," roll 4 large marshmallows between the palms of your hands until slightly oblong in shape. Cut each rolled marshmallow crosswise in half. Slightly flatten each marshmallow half and, if necessary, reshape each to be oblong. Place 1 raisin in center of cut side of each marshmallow half. Draw veins on the "eyes" using red food coloring and a toothpick.
