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. 

Step 2: Added Chocolate

I like to add extra chocolate to my hot chocolate because it adds to the creaminess of the hot chocolate.  I prefer smaller chocolate such as chocolate chips over Hershey's Kisses because they melt faster.  

Step 3: Marshmallows

Marshmallows are a classic hot chocolate item.  I love them because... I don't know.  I just like to put them in my hot chocolate.  I have heard of putting marshmallow creme in because it's just that: creamier.  I couldn't tell you from personal experience.

Step 4: Dairy Products

Finally I have dairy products.  I always heat up my hot chocolate more than necessary then add milk.  Once again, creaminess.  I also like whipped cream for the same reason as marshmallows.  I don't know.  I hope you like my instructable, it was made for the stay warm contest by Scoochmaroo.  
uh, the title was the ultimate hot chocolate, not what you add to it, how did you make it?<br>
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 &quot;making your cup of hot chocolate taste even yummier&quot;...?
