Makes for a great hot chocolate for those times you want to serve something special! The peppermint candy canes make for a very festive look. While good anytime I am adding this recipe to my Holiday Cookbook.

Delicious, bittersweet treat. I loved the mint flavor in this lovely hot chocolate. I used peppermint syrup as I was out of extract, it worked beautifully, creating a rich, flavorful, silky treat. Made for Best of 2014 Tag Game.
