December 18, 2009, Newsletter Issue #444: Candy Cane Hot Chocolate

Tip of the Week

My girls and I have been snowed in. Of course, this is excellent news according to my daughter. She is content to go out in the snow and build snowmen. Every time she comes back inside she says, "Can I have some hot chocolate?"

I decided to have her help me make some candy cane hot chocolate to mix things up a bit. It really isn't hard at all, so I thought I would share the recipe with you.

Begin by pouring two cups of milk in a small pot. Set the pot on the stove and turn the heat setting to medium-high. Place two candy canes in a plastic baggy and hit it with a hammer until it is in pieces. When the milk has warmed up, add the candy cane pieces. Now open a packet of hot chocolate over the milk. Mix the ingredients together until the candy cane pieces have melted. Pour the candy cane hot chocolate in a mug and add a few mini marshmallows and a candy cane for decoration.
