National Cocoa Day - Service Uniform TX
There are very few things better than curling up in a blanket with a hot mug of cocoa. So join us in celebrating National Cocoa Day! Everyone has their favorite brands or recipes, but here are some non-traditional twists on cocoa to warm you up:
Double Chocolate Hot Cocoa
There’s no such thing as too much chocolate?! Try adding some chocolate chips or half a chocolate bar to your mug before pouring in the steaming cocoa. This is a lovely after-lunch dessert to sip while finishing up some stuff in the office.
Coconut Hot Cocoa
If you’re a coconut fan, go nuts—add coconut milk, coconut extract or coconut flakes to your hot cocoa (or all three!). Top with some marshmallows and chocolate syrup to make it a truly indulgent treat. This one is perfect for serving to some friends at a low-key holiday get-together.
Peanut Butter Hot Cocoa
It is with a happy heart that we suggest Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate. Throw a tablespoon of peanut butter into your mug of cocoa, along with a little bit of sugar and maybe some vanilla extract. Then grab a blanket and bring it with you to the base of a mountain for winter picnicking.
Espresso Honey Hot Cocoa
There are honey lattes, mocha lattes, and half-hot-cocoa-half-coffee concoctions out there—why not combine them all? Add a shot of espresso, a splash of milk, and a teaspoon of honey to your hot cocoa to help it all go down. Enjoy this one while reading a book or doing some work at home.
If you love chocolate as much as we do, you’ll want to try all of these recipes in one night. We hope you enjoy!
