WEEK OF TREATS – DAY 4

Hot Chocolate is the drink of choice at our house this season. We drink it plain, with marshmallows, with chocolate shavings, or topped with Peppermint Whipped Cream Magic. Seeing as I love chocolate and mint together (almost as much as I love chocolate and peanut butter together), I decided to make some of these Chocolate Dipped Candy Canes. They’re fun to dip and give your hot chocolate an extra chocolatey pepperminty boost… Mmmmmmm!

Supplies for Dipped Candy Canes:

  • candy canes
  • chocolate
  • Hot Chocolate Drink Mix

Melt some of your favorite chocolate. I used milk chocolate chips and melted them in the microwave for 1 minute at a time. Then dip the candy canes into the chocolate. I dipped them on both sides because I didn’t know which way people may like it, but I like the tops dipped and then use the stick to stir. Lay them on wax paper to cool. Now dip them into your Hot Chocolate Drink and enjoy!
