  • Hot Chocolate see below
  • Crushed candy canes
  • Whipped Cream
  • Chocolate syrup
  • Mini marshmallows


  • Make your favorite hot chocolate or cocoa and add 1 TBS crushed candy cane to each 8 oz mug or simply use Hershey’s syrup and milk, adding in the crushed candy canes. If however you are looking for a killer hot chocolate recipe, try my Crazy Good Hot Chocolate Recipe found here. I make it by the gallon! Then just portion some out and add crushed candy canes into it. Heat until they melt.
  • Top each mug of hot chocolate with a handful of mini marshmallows (make sure you have a big enough mug) then a crazy amount of whipped cream followed by a drizzle of chocolate syrup, more crushed candy canes and a spritz of red sprinkles. Face plant!
  • If you have never made homemade whipped cream before, here is my recipe...You will never go back to store-bought!
