Peppermint Hot Chocolate

This recipe was given to me by my sister, who is a true lover of all things chocolate.  Her recipe actually uses cinnamon sticks instead of candy canes; however, we had a large stash of candy canes and it is the season for peppermint hot chocolate!

I made this right after the holidays and had a stash of candy canes to use.  I felt like the candy cane made the hot chocolate delicious!  It was just enough peppermint without being to strong, which for me made it perfect.  I will be drinking this often until I run out of all the leftover candy canes!

    We have been using the instant hot choc mix and stirring in 1 of the candy cane Hershey kisses we got at Christmas. They give it a delicious flavor and melt right away.
