There is nothing more delicious than peppermint hot chocolate on a cold winter day. Oh, wait. Yeah, there s: my peppermint hot chocolate body scrub. It has all the feelings of sweet indulgence without the calories or sugar overload.
It also makes a great gift that is enjoyed by the recipient after the last holiday candy cane is gone and is super easy for you to make during the flurry of winter preparation.
So here is the recipe to make for your loved ones--and yourself:
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
5-10 drops peppermint essential oil
Add all ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined. To gift this, simply put the scrub in a mason jar and wrap the jar in a festive ribbon.
