When shopping recently, I found these Snowman Marshmallows and could’t wait to make a special hot chocolate to go with them. For this recipe I used Ghirardelli Bittersweet Chocolate, Hershey’s Chocolate Mint Candy Canes and Peeps Marshmallows. “Hmmm, yum!” My company and I enjoyed our hot chocolate and cookies.
Candy Cane Hot Chocolate
Makes 3 servings
4.5 oz. bittersweet chocolate, broken into pieces
1/4 c. candy cane pieces (about 3 candy canes broken into pieces)
12 oz. boiling water
4 oz. half and half
whipped cream for garnish
shaved chocolate for garnish
whole candy canes for garnish
marshmallows for garnish, optional
Place chocolate and candy cane pieces in a small non-stick pan. Pour boiling water over chocolate and candy canes. Stir. Turn low heat on under pan. Whisk chocolate mixture until smooth. Whisk in half-and-half and continue to heat mixture until hot, but not boiling. Meanwhile, assemble ingredients for garnishing. Carefully ladle into serving cups and garnish. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
