Peppermint Cocoa–The Easy Way

peppermint cocoa

Cocoa is always a favorite, and the peppermint version is especially delicious. You can add a few marshmallows for the little ones, or some vodka for that uncle who is looking for something “festive.”

When you’ve got a house full of guests, a stovetop brimming over with holiday food, and your hands are full, there’s always that one person who wants something. When your favorite uncle asks, “Do you have any holiday drinks?” hand him a candy cane. Keep a bowl of unwrapped, large candy canes nearby to use as stir sticks in cocoa, coffee and mixed drinks. (Here are some great recipes for holiday drinks for grown-ups.)
