A Little Kringling... Candy Cane Cocoa


Candy Cane Cocoa 
is one of family's favorite winter drinks. 


I always make a big batch in December and hope that it will last.
~smile~


 It's just as good in January or February as at Christmastime. I've had the recipe for at least twenty years maybe longer. Thank you to whoever gave it to me! We've enjoyed it. ~smile~


It makes a great gift in a pretty little jar with a cute tag, too.

  1. My boys and I love anything flavored with peppermint and chocolate! I normally just buy the coffee creamer flavor and put that in our cocoa, tea or coffee. But, I think I would rather make this! Thanks so much for sharing!!
    Yum!
    Enjoy your day Laura!
    Hugs, Amy
