Our Favorite Christmas Cocoa

Today, as we do every year just after Thanksgiving, my little family and I will wander into the woods and bring home the Perkins’ Christmas tree.

Each year, as we decorate our new addition, we listen to old Christmas songs, nibble on goodies, and always, always have a mug or two of our homemade Christmas Cocoa.

Here’s the recipe, just three ingredients…may it bring as much joy and warmth to your family as it has ours!

Christmas Cocoa
1 quart of half-and-half milk.
4 regular milk chocolate bars
1 large Peppermint Patty bar

Bring milk to a very low simmer; add milk chocolate & peppermint patty, stirring constantly until the chocolate has melted completely.

Serve hot and enjoy the company!
