Candy Cane White Hot Chocolate


I'm not going to lie, I'm a sucker for a warm holiday beverage.  Always a fan of white chocolate and peppermint alike (also, they were both in my cupboard), I thought these two ingredients combined would make for a pretty festive drink. 

Ingredients
- 1 box (6 squares) white bakers chocolate
- 1 L (4 cups) milk
- 1/2 cup whipping cream
- 6 candy canes, (plus 6 more for stir sticks if desired)

Directions

Crush 6 of the candy canes (I threw them all in a Ziplock freezer bag and crushed them with the bottom of a cup).

Whip the cream using a hand mixer until stiff peaks form.  Set aside.

Shave 1 square of chocolate (for topping) and set aside.

Melt remaining chocolate in saucepan over medium heat.  Add milk and stir until warmed through, about 3 minutes.  Add crushed candy canes (reserve 1 tbsp for sprinkling) and mix until melted.  Pour into a mug.

Add whipping cream & top with sprinkle of remaining crushed candy cane and white chocolate shavings.  Serve with candy cane stir stick.

Serves 6.

Enjoy!
