Step 1

Set up a double boiler and bring water to a simmer. Add chocolate to a bowl and let it melt as you stir continuously. To keep the chocolate from getting too hot, occasionally lift up the bowl and wipe the bottom with a clean towel.

Once chocolate has melted, remove from heat, add cocoa and confectioners sugar. Mix well.

Pour mixture into a clean ice cube tray or other mold, and top with crushed candy canes. Allow to sit for 20 minutes and then insert spoons, wooden sticks, or skewers into the chocolate. Let cool and harden completely.

Add to a glass of hot milk and stir to melt. Top with marshmallows and enjoy, or wrap in plastic and store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
