FOOD FUN: Crushed Peppermint Hot Chocolate

If you have leftover candy canes or other red-and-white peppermints, here’s a good use for a cold day:

Crush them and use them as a hot chocolate garnish.

First top the hot chocolate with:

  • Marshmallows
  • Marshmallows Cream (e.g. Fluff)
  • Whipped Cream
  •  
    You can even add a small scoop of ice cream; just make the hot chocolate extra-hot.
     
     
    HOW TO CRUSH PEPPERMINTS

    1. PLACE the candies in a resealable plastic bag. Place the bag on a cutting board to protect the countertop.

    2. USE the smooth side of a meat mallet to crush the candies to the desired size. No mallet? Use a hammer.

    3. TO CREATE a powder, place the crushed pieces in a spice blender.
