Holiday Cocktail Party With A Twist {Part Two}

If picking the right invitation made you a little thirsty then you've come to the right place.

Pick your poison.

Candy Cane Hot Chocolate

4 cups milk
2-3 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate, chopped
4 peppermint candy canes, crushed to powder
1 cup whipped cream
4 small peppermint candy canes

In a saucepan, heat milk until hot, but not boiling. Whisk in the chocolate and the crushed peppermint candies until melted and smooth. Pour hot cocoa into four mugs, and garnish with whipped cream. Serve each with a candy cane stirring stick. (or add peppermint liqueur for a kick!)
