On chilly nights, snuggle up on the couch or next to a toasty fireplace with a warm mug of hot cocoa.
Peppermint Stick Hot Chocolate
Make a traditional cup of hot chocolate fit for the holidays by serving it with candy canes. The candy cane is not only for
decoration – it also adds flavor to the hot chocolate as it melts in the mug.
This grown-up version of hot chocolate starts with an easy caramel syrup made with fresh ginger and sugar. Milk and chocolate
sauce are then stirred in to make a cozy chocolate brew with a subtle kick.
It takes only minutes to assemble, but this combo of mini chocolate chips, crushed peppermint candies, cocoa, sugar, and milk
powder makes a festive hot cocoa mix that's bound to be one "hot" holiday gift.
