  • Hot cocoa mix
  • Water or milk (depending on how you like to make your hot cocoa)
  • Mini marshmallows (or fluff if you so choose)
  • Candy cane


Turn on your kettle or heat milk in a sauce pan. While waiting for your water or milk to heat to desired temperature, grab your candy cane and keep it in its wrapper. Take the bottom of your mug and gently slam down on the candy cane (great for working any holiday stress off). Empty candy cane pieces into a bowl or container. Once your water or milk is heated, mix in your favorite hot cocoa mix and top with mini marshmallows and a sprinkling of crushed peppermint. Enjoy the most refreshing cup of cheer of the season! 

Serves: two 

Wishing you all a very merry day!
