These Chocolate Dipped Candy Cane Hot Cocoa Sticks are a festive way to drink your holiday hot cocoa.
I don't know about you, but when the weather cools down I could drink hot chocolate just about every day. I love chocolate, first of all.... but I also love how it helps to warm you up from the inside.
There is something special about enjoying a day out in the snow and then coming inside for a warm glass of hot cocoa.
These chocolate covered peppermint sticks are a great way to enjoy your festive treat while also adding some delicious flavor to your hot chocolate.
