Picture of How to make your hot chocolate the ultimate hot chocolate
After going outside and sledding, nothing beats a cup of fresh hot chocolate.  In this instructable I am going to share my favorite things to put in hot chocolate. 

Step 1: Candy canes

I absolutely love to put candy canes in my hot chocolate, before and after I heat it up.  A substitute for candy canes can be peppermint extract.  They both add a great refreshing taste to hot chocolate.

uh, the title was the ultimate hot chocolate, not what you add to it, how did you make it?

If you can suggest a better name, I'll change it. And for your info, I made it with instant stuff. A number 10 can if it pleases you.
Sorry for being rude. :)

instead of candy canes, try the little peppermint discs in your cup. I prefer the butterscotch ones, but i can find either flavor in a medium sized bag (dunno, maybe 100 pieces?) at wally world for $1.

Yup. Just depends on what you have on hand.

Perhaps "making your cup of hot chocolate taste even yummier"...?
