Hi Live Laugh Rowe readers! Kimberly from A Night Owl here, and I’m so happy to be here sharing a fun and festive recipe with you today! I absolutely adore Kelly and always have, so I jumped at the chance to chat with you here on her amazing blog. Kelly is a kindred spirit, we both love to create and craft! And today I’m sharing my latest delicious creation – Candy Cane Hot Cocoa!
So I was running through the store the other day (that’s how I roll, I’m always in a hurry!) and near the check out counter I saw a bag of Candy Cane Hershey Kisses out of the corner of my eye. GASP! Now I know you may not be ready for ALL things Christmas, I mean we still have Thanksgiving to consider, right?! But I welcome Christmas goodies and treats with open arms! So my open arms snagged up a few bags and headed home.
Now I have ALL sorts of plans for these tasty little gems. Yes, besdies just unwrapping and popping them into my mouth. And first up, I knew they would make some delicious hot cocoa! So I unwrapped and chopped up about half a bag, added them to some milk on the stovetop and slowly melted that chocolate goodness…
Candy Cane Hot Cocoa
- 4 oz Candy Cane Hershey Kisses
- 2 cups milk
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- Whipped cream optional
Unwrap and chop the Hershey Kisses into smaller pieces.
In a small saucepan, combine the chocolate, milk and vanilla and melt over medium heat, stirring often (do not allow mixture to boil).
Once completely melted, pour hot cocoa into mugs, top with whipped cream and enjoy immediately!
So what do you think? I have to admit it was insanely delicious. I will definitely be adding this to our Christmas treat list this year! What are your favorite treats for the holiday season? Drinks are definitely tops on my list. So if you like this recipe then you might enjoy our …
Well there you have it friends! Thank you for having me – I hope you whip up a cup of this amazing Candy Cane Hot Cocoa and snuggle up on the couch to enjoy!
