This is a recipe that my grandma used to make for her family when my mom was growing up and then when my mom was older she would make it for our family. I haven't had it in years so it was fun to make it myself for the first time. The recipe is really simple and easy and with the peppermint chocolate flavor and the crushed candy cane garnish it makes the perfect holiday treat!
