Spiced Latte Candy Cane Drinks

You will need:
1 cup warmed milk (not boiled) for the froth
1 cup hot coffee
1 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbs sugar or 1/4 tsp Stevia
1 oz of peppermint vodka
Whipped cream
Crushed candy cane
 
Directions:
Put the cocoa powder and sugar in the bottom of your coffee mug.
Add the peppermint vodka.
Pour the hot coffee over it and stir.
Froth the milk and pour it over the hot coffee.
Top the coffee with whipped cream and sprinkle on crushed candy canes.
If you really want to be decadent, drizzle some chocolate syrup over the top.
 

I don’t know about you, but I find candy canes fascinating! Just look at how they are made:

The legend of the candy cane:

One legend suggests that an Indiana-based candymaker shaped the peppermint stick into a “J” shape to represent Jesus, with the white stripe symbolizing the purity of his birth and the red stripe later added to acknowledge the blood he shed on the cross. Whether you are religious or not, they are just darned tasty!

Make sure you stock up on them right after Christmas – they will keep well and are even sweeter when they are 70-90% off!
