Make up a mug of hot chocolate according to the packet instructions and stir in the following ingredients to create 3 tasty varieties (cream and marshmallows optional!):

  • Icy Mint Chocolate –ย Pop a couple of After 8 mint chocolates into the hot chocolate & add a mint candy cane as a stirrer (usually the mint candy canes have a green stripe with red or pink).
  • Cheeky Cherry Chocolate – Stir in a shot of amaretto (or add a little juice from a jar of cocktail cherries if you want a non-alcoholic version) and add a cherry candy cane (traditionally red & white canes).
  • Spiced Christmas Chocolate – Add half a teaspoon of mixed spice (or ground cinnamon and ground nutmeg if you don’t have mixed spice) to the hot chocolate powder & make up as normal before adding a couple of chunks of dark chocolate to melt into it.
