The weather outside is pretty chilly. Sweaters, jackets, gloves and scarfs are out of storage and being worn to keep from freezing. This holiday season stay warm with this tasty beverage that will make you smile.
All you need is some delicious ingredients from your pantry. I used caramel from Mrs. Calls, because I had that on hand, but you may use any caramel candy that is at your local grocery store such as Brach's, Smucker's or Bequet Caramel ( adjust cooking time for the softer caramel).

Directions: Unwrap the caramel candy and pour into the cup you will be using for the final product. Melt the caramel in the microwave by heating it for 5 seconds (time may vary depending on the caramel. Less time for Soft Caramel and for a more thick caramel add 5 seconds.) Then pour the milk over the caramel and add the Hershey Cocoa mix. Stir all ingredients together until it is mixed well. One last time in the microwave for an additional 35 seconds to warm the milk. Take out and stir to mix the ingredients. Taste it to make sure it is warm enough for you. Add additional time if needed, but not too much. Add the 2 kisses to make it sweet and mix well. Finish by adding your favorite dairy cream such as Cool Whip or Reddi Whip. If you have extra Hershey kisses add one on top just because.
Each kitchen is different and cooking times may vary. I enjoy a hot beverage that does not burn my mouth. I have taken that into consideration in this recipe. Use your creative side when making this yummy treat. Tip: Using bright and seasonal coffee cups can make it a little more fun. I hope you enjoy this recipe.
