As it gets colder outside and we search for ways to stay warm, a heartwarming favorite comes to mind: hot chocolate. People have been drinking hot chocolate for hundreds of years, and over the years this classic favorite has been remixed and revitalized so many times. So much that it seems like every mug of hot chocolate can be a new adventure! How do you take your hot chocolate?
You can’t go wrong with an original. Plain hot chocolate is delicious on its own, of course, but if you’re looking for add-ins, marshmallows or caramel are great places to start!
If you’re looking for a way to break up the sweetness of traditional hot chocolate, salt can be a great addition. Sprinkle in some sea salt for a decadent drink that will warm up your day. Salted hot chocolate is great for times where you desire dessert in a cup, as it brings the rich blend of favor you’d get in a chocolate cake or pie.
Depending on the kick you’re looking for, hot chocolate can make a great palate for a little bit of spice. For just a hint, try a peppermint stick (especially great for the cold season) in your drink. Other flavors you can add with a little more kick: cinnamon, gingerbread, or even chili powder! Try these add-ins when you want to add some excitement to your hot chocolate.
Wintertime is the best time to experiment with your favorites. You can even make a fun checklist and try something different every time. Spice up your life! Start with a delicious cup of hot chocolate in the office and the possibilities are endless.
