Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



This was a delicious mug of hot chocolate. It's pretty good for being so simple, too -- just a bit of milk, cocoa, chocolate chips and peppermint sticks. The cocoa flavoring was just right too, so I wouldn't adjust that ingredient when I make this again. I didn't have any of the mini candy canes on hand which I thought would be a more appropriate garnish, but I did have some larger ones left from Christmas. So I unwrapped a few of the regular candy canes and used them as stir sticks. Thanks, TeresaS.
