Happy New Year! Or "Boa Ano" as they say around here! We celebrated the New Year with some Candy Cane Cocoa from allrecipes.com. I think I even said, "Who needs Starbuck's?"
I've had a new eagerness to use up leftover candy canes I've been keeping since they are getting goopy here in Portugal (it's not as dry as Germany). It's also encouraged this new season for me in the living overseas experience: use up my American (or German) foods stash and not hoard it for who knows when! I know the holidays are officially over, but this is worth it any cold night! And whole soft candy canes melt really well too!
