    A tasty holiday flavored cocoa for the sugar challenged. You get some therapeutic pounding on the candies as a bonus, lol.

      I made this for a friend who recently found out that they are diabetic. Of course I had to try a cup, and it didn't taste like a sugarfree drink. I love the aroma of the crushed peppermint candies as I was stirring this drink. My friend is going to love this drink. Made for Dec. 2009 Photo Tag.
