Happy 14th December {Blogmas}

Here is a little treat to warm yourself up on a cold winters day…

Candy Cane Hot Chocolate…


  • 200g bar plain chocolate, broken into chunks
  • 600ml milk
  • 150ml pot single or double cream
  • sugar, to taste
  • 6 peppermint candy canes, to serve


  1. Put the chocolate in a pan with the milk. Gently heat, stirring until all the chocolate has melted. Continue heating until the milk is steaming, then remove from the heat and stir in the cream.
  2. Divide the hot chocolate between 6 mugs, add sugar to taste and hang a candy cane on the edge of each. Pass the mugs round and let everyone stir their hot chocolate with their candy cane – letting as much of the sweet peppermint dissolve as they fancy.


I found this recipe in the wonderful Good Food magazine and its definitely on my things to do list on Christmas Eve

So until tomorrow, I shall leave you with this..

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas 
Just like the ones I used to know 
Where the treetops glisten, 
and children listen 
To hear sleigh bells in the snow
