Hot Chocolate Candy Cane Float

December 17th, 2014 | Recipes, Seasonal

We love hot chocolate around here, most often with the typical marshmallow topping, but every once in a while I go a little crazy and try something new… I think we found a winner!

Presidents Choice Candy Cane Ice Cream is my Christmas weakness. Really how can you go wrong with candy canes, ice cream, and huge pieces of chocolate fudge, all mixed into one heavenly tub? So while sipping on a tasty hot chocolate I thought why hasn’t anyone combined these two together… and the Hot Chocolate Candy Cane Float was born!

Hot and cold are both so intense, put them together it just makes sense

Typically by the time we add enough milk to cool it down, the hot chocolate I serve my children is 3 parts milk to one part hot chocolate, they may as well have a glass of Chocolate milk.  The hot chocolate candy cane float is the perfect solution for kids and too hot beverages. Plus it makes it so rich and creamy with a hint of candy cane!

It’s like a Christmas party in your mouth!

So delicious and to my surprise it takes the scoop of ice cream a little bit to melt, much slower than whip cream!
