Peppermint Stick Hot Chocolate

For an adults-only party, consider spiking this drink with mint liqueur, such as peppermint schnapps or crème de menthe.


12 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup hot chocolate, 1 candy cane, 1 tablespoon marshmallows)

* 8 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
* 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
* 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
* 3 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
* 12 candy canes
* 3/4 cup miniature marshmallows
* Whole grated nutmeg (optional)

Combine milk, brown sugar, cocoa, vanilla, nutmeg, and semisweet chocolate in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook 25 minutes or until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth, stirring occasionally. Serve with candy canes and marshmallows. Garnish with whole grated nutmeg, if desired.
