Low Calorie Hot Chocolate

Stirring the candy cane in your hot chocolate gives it a lovely peppermint flavor. It also adds a nice holiday touch if you are entertaining for the holidays.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 4 cups non-fat milk
  • 2 Tbsp plus 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp plus 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
