Without a doubt, every year after the holidays, I`m left over with a bunch of candy canes. I never buy them myself... they just... appear. And so I`m left with either throwing them out, giving them away, or somehow using them. Since I had a few hot chocolate K-cups for my Keurig, I decided to spice it up and add a candy cane!
Hot chocolate is always great with marshmallows and peppermint, and throwing in a candy cane is a great way to make it festive! Using candy canes are also a great way to stir up that extra chocolate powder that always ends up sitting at the bottom of the mug when you`re done. Useful, tasty, and cute!
If you`re looking to make your hot chocolate ever better... add in some peppermint vodka or peppermint bark vodka (Pinnacle makes it!) and stir it in with your candy cane. I did that the other night and loved it! It`s a nice way to turn a simple yummy drink into a more adult and fun drink (perfect for holiday parties too! Ideas for next year, lol!).
So next time you`re left with a bunch of candy canes after the holidays, use them in drinks (even coffee - hello peppermint mocha!) for a quick and fun way to spice up your beverage :)
