wow this is so yummy! Me too I'm in heaven. I used skim milk, and for the cream I used 15% fat cream. And I added the optional brandy :P I didn't have candy cane to decorate but I used a cute mug for Christmas. Thanks Marra. Made for Zaar Star Game

Wow! This is sooo good. It's almost like the hot chocolate I made as a child made with milk that came straight from the cow. The peppermint candy cane adds a lovely minty flavour to the drink. Made for November Holiday Tag.

I'm in heaven! This is a wonderfully creamy drink! I used Bailey's Irish cream in lieu of the brandy and heavy cream, and didn't have any candy canes, but I drank both servings. YUM!!!!
