The Many Flavors of Hot Chocolate
Written by Leigh Buchholz. Media by Kelsey Neier.
The holiday season has come and gone, but it is still cold enough for the one steaming, chocolaty beverage that most of us cannot live without. Hot chocolate! Some of us have only ever had one flavor of hot chocolate, but there are many other flavors out there that could spice up the winter season. Hot chocolate can be anything from sweet and salty to spicy and tangy and that is just the beginning!
Just mix peanut butter and cocoa mix together and add a sprinkle of sea salt to create this salty sweet drink.
Add a bit of French vanilla creamer to your hot chocolate for a new hot chocolate taste experience.
Spice up white hot chocolate with pumpkin spices and a dash of vanilla.
Fan of Nutella? Just add some to simmering milk and you will have the perfect wintery drink.
Add a pinch of cinnamon powder to your hot chocolate just because you can.
For a minty chocolate drink, add some peppermint patties into the mix. (And don’t forget the candy cane stirrer!)
Add some grated orange zest to your hot chocolate to make it tangy and sweet.
Use coconut milk instead of regular milk and sprinkle some coconut shaving on top.
Sprinkle some cinnamon and cayenne into your hot chocolate to spice things up.
Add some caramel to make your hot chocolate even sweeter.
