  • Add milk, sugar and cocoa powder to the container of a Vitamix blender.
  • Blend, starting on low speed and increasing to high. Blend on high speed for 3 minutes, or until the mixture is smooth and warm.
  • Add chocolate, vanilla and candy cane pieces and blend for 3 minutes until mixture is smooth and hot.
  • Pour into mugs, top with whipped cream, marshmallows and crushed candy cane pieces and serve!



*I like a subtle candy cane flavor. If you like a more pronounced mint flavor, add more candy canes or ½ tsp of peppermint extract.
