With cold weather all around the country right now, make an evening with hot chocolate even more special. Here are some tips for delicious and fun garnishes.
- Rather than tossing marshmallows into the hot chocolate, skewer some mini marshmallows onto a wooden skewer and set in the mug. I use about 5 on half a bamboo skewer.
- Use some whipped cream in a can, such as Reddi-Wip, and garnish the top. Use a vegetable peeler or grater to grate some chocolate over the top.
- Use the whipped cream as in number 2 above but instead of chocolate shavings as a garnish, drizzle some Hershey’s syrup over the whipped cream.
- Crush up leftover candy canes or peppermint candies and stir into the hot chocolate for a peppermint flavor.
