If you want larger chunks of mint in your hot chocolate, break up a few candy canes by hand and place them in the food processor. I like big chunks that take a while to melt. If you don't, use crushed candy canes instead.
Place all the ingredients except the crushed candy canes into a food processor and grind until smooth. Have patience! It takes a while for the chocolate to chop up.
Once the powder is created, then you can add in the crushed candy canes; pulse them a couple of times to get them mixed in.
To use: Add the hot chocolate powder to taste in a cup of hot water. Since we use milk powder, you don't need to use milk.
