Need a use for those leftover candy canes? Do you like peppermint cocoa? Try this recipe. This also makes a nice gift when combined with nice cocoa mix or packets and a cute cup.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a fabulous idea! The marshmallows and peppermint melt into the cocoa adding an extra pop of flavor. Just make sure the candy canes are crushed really fine or you may have a problem with them sticking. These would be fun on Christmas morning with the family. Or hand them out as gifts at a holiday party. So fun!
