Brrrrrr.....when it's cold outside, cozy up by the Christmas tree and a warm fire with a cup of homemade peppermint hot cocoa. The rich, creamy chocolate paired with peppermint candy canes is a match made in holiday heaven! And with only a handful of ingredients, it's a delicious delight you can whip up in a hurry.

Whether it's for your family on Christmas Eve or as an after-dinner treat for guests, this is a homemade hot cocoa that's sweet to look at and to sip. We think you'll love this peppermint hot cocoa recipe so much it just may become your newest holiday tradition.

Peppermint Hot Cocoa

How to make it

  1. Place four unwrapped Spangler candy canes in a zip bag. Crush with a mallet or the side of a rolling pin until finely crushed. (Large pieces of candy canes are difficult to melt in the cocoa.) Set aside.
  2. Heat milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Once milk begins to steam, add chocolate and crushed candy canes. Stir until melted and smooth.
  3. Divide mixture among four mugs. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of crushed candy canes. Add one candy cane to each mug to use as a stir stick.
  4. Holiday Tip: For an extra fun and festive touch, dress up your homemade hot cocoa mugs with a peppermint rim. Just moisten the rim with water and roll in crushed candy canes.
