White Chocolate-Peppermint Hot Cocoa Mix

A jar of homemade cocoa mix makes a lovely gift, but once you mix up this ultrarich blend with white chocolate and mint, you might want to keep it all for yourself. To crush the peppermint candy, put the unwrapped pieces in a heavy-duty Ziploc bag and let your kids crush it with the bottom of a pan or with a large C or D battery.
