How to Make the Perfect Cup of Hot Chocolate

by Bergen Eppers

For those cold wintry days when you need something special, here’s a quick how-to for one of my go-to drinks:

  1. Grab a coffee mug and fill it with milk for how much hot chocolate you want.
  2.  Now for something fancy. Break off a piece of candy cane and put in the cup. Heat it up in the microwave for one minute. If you have more cups, one minute per cup.
  3. Once heated, take it out and stir until most of the candy cane is melted. Next, add two tablespoons of your favorite hot chocolate mix. I would suggest Tim Hortons. Then add more if needed until you are happy with your amount of chocolate. I would suggest to make it easier to stir and get a creamier texture, put the mug back in for 30-45 seconds.
  4. For toppings, it depends on how sweet you want it. Some toppings you can add are whip cream, marshmallows, chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, crushed candy cane, or a candy cane stick  (peppermint stick dipped in chocolate).
  5. Now cuddle by the fire in your onesie and enjoy your gourmet hot chocolate.
