101 Not so Traditional Hot Cocoa Recipes

If you guys are like us, we love Hot chocolate. It’s honestly one of our favorite things to drink no matter the time of year. Of course, this time, being winter, it is the most popular. There are so many fun flavors and colors that you can try. We do also make our own Hot Cocoa Bombs as well, which you can check out in our Product section.

Anyway, we decided we wanted to drive around looking at the beautiful lights around our area including the Festival of Lights in a near by park. It was so beautiful. You can check our pictures below. But before we did the drive, we wanted to test out some new hot cocoa recipes and this was what we found. We found so many amazing fun recipes for kids and adults. Please go follow all these bloggers and show them the love.
