I tried the Santa Cocoa recipe which is very simple and contains cocoa, sugar, hot water, milk, marshmallows, green sprinkles, and peppermint candy. The only two things I did differently were using small marshmallows and smashed peppermint candy rounds to set off the green sprinkles. The cocoa had strong chocolate, marshmallow, and mint aromatics. The flavor was chocolaty with mint on the back of the palate. From a child’s perspective, I would add a little more cocoa powder and top with whipped cream. I would also pair it with shortbread cookies, cake, or brownies. I had two children try this recipe and they loved it!
