Peppermint Hot Cocoa - Great gift idea!

I made this tonight, and WOW!  Had to share it right away.

1 serving of your normal hot cocoa mix (I use Carnation because Swiss Miss just isn't good enough)
1 T of crushed peppermint candies

While still in a wrapper, I put the peppermints on a cutting board and hit them with a hammer a few times.  Original, huh?  Use a plastic cutting board or your wooden one will have dents, like mine, and your glass one will shatter.  No, the glass info isn't from experience, just common sense.  Put the crushed peppermints in a bowl or Tupperware and use as needed.

Make it a Peppermint Mocha by using coffee instead of water, or a shot of espresso and milk, with chocolate syrup.  It's just that easy.  And cheap!

Need a gift idea? Layer cocoa mix and crushed peppermint candies in a jar and decorate it all fancy.
