A hot drink is an easy way to warm you up during the cold season. An easy way to make a tasty drink is to throw in some Hershey Candy Cane kisses. Grab a few kisses and cut them up before adding them to your choice of hot chocolate.

Stir the hot chocolate until the kisses are completely melted. The kisses add a minty taste to the hot cocoa and give more dimension to the hot chocolate flavor.
