Sharing is caring!

There was a slight chill in the air this week as I left for work this week. For me, that means it is time to pull out the Hot Chocolate. I will use any and all excuses to drink a steaming cup of cocoa. It’s just so good! 

While “regular” hot chocolate is amazing, it’s fun to find ways to mix it up through the cold fall/winter months. I’ve created a list of some unique flavors you can buy/make at home and toppings that are easy to throw onto whichever flavor you choose. It’s easy to take your cocoa up a notch!

This is also great for parties and receptions. Set up a Hot Cocoa Bar with these different flavors and toppings! All you need are a few containers, serving spoons, and cute labels for each item. It’s sure to be a hit with your guests!

If the weather is too warm for cocoa (we don’t think that is possible), the toppings also pair wonderfully with ice cream!
