One of my favorite “seasonal” beverages is a Ho Ho Mocha. Kind of a silly name but a fabulous drink for the chilly air! This beverage contains two of my favorite flavors: mint and chocolate. I have finished decorating for Christmas (yup…I’m that person) and I was thinking up some new ways to enjoy the tastes of the season.
What you will need:
mini candy canes
dark chocolate chips (you can use milk or white too)
Lay out your unwrapped candy canes on the wax paper in a heart shape, making sure to leave space between each heart.
Melt your chocolate chips in a microwave safe container in 30 second intervals…stir between each 30 seconds. Pour the melted chocolate into a plastic bag and snip off a TINY piece of the corner to allow the chocolate to be squeezed through (like a piping bag).
Fill each heart with chocolate and add sprinkles. Let the candy hearts set (this should take about an hour) without being disturbed until the chocolate hardens again.
Remove from the wax and enjoy!
