    You can definitely use peppermint extract in place of the candy cane. How much you use will all depend on how much peppermint flavor you want the drink to have. Let us know how it works out.

    thought it was very good…. Could I put peppermint extract instead of the candy cane?

    This recipe sounds yummy… will try it this week on the kids.

    I don’t see a place here for feedback, but I’m really hoping you make some improvements to your recipes directory… add an index and search capability, and please fix the printing – it really doesn’t work. I just have to copy and paste and create my own document. Thanks for listening!

    Works well with Penzey’s Hot Chocolate Mix in place of the cocoa, sugar, salt and cinnamon. (The mix has cocoa, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla)

    I made this recipe as is and it was two resounding thumbs up from both my boys (ages 15 and 12). My only question is whether one can double up on the ingredients and make double the amount. I was thinking of making this when we have friends and family over for Christmas, but with so many people it could take quite a while, especially if I run the "Soup" cycle twice to get it warm.
