‘Tis the season for hot chocolate! Today’s recipe is the perfect companion for a cup of steaming hot cocoa. These chocolate-covered candy cane stir sticks are so fun and delicious. They add extra chocolate flavor (I can never have too much) and a hint of peppermint to each sip.  They’re fabulous to serve at a party or even packaged as a gift. Trust me, you won’t want another cup of cocoa without one.

Chocolate Candy Cane Stir Sticks

12 peppermint candy canes, unwrapped
1 cup premium chocolate chips (milk or semi-sweet)
5 tablespoons heavy cream
vanilla candy wafers (optional)

In a small double boiler over medium heat, melt the chocolate chips with the cream, stirring frequently until the chocolate is completely melted with no lumps. Hold each candy cane over the pan and spoon a layer of chocolate over the bottom half of the candy cane. Give the candy cane a gentle shake to remove any excess chocolate. Lay each candy cane on a sheet of parchment paper to cool.

Melt candy wafers according to package directions and drizzle onto cooling candy canes. Allow chocolate and candy to completely cool and solidify before serving.

TIP: The better the chocolate chip, the better the taste. Use the good stuff!
