Hot Chocolate Tips

How can you make hot chocolate your own?

Turn your hot chocolate into a Swiss mocha by adding 2 to 2-1/2 teaspoons instant coffee along with the vanilla. For a Canadian flair, add 1/2 teaspoon imitation maple flavoring with the vanilla. Spice things up by adding 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and a pinch of cayenne for a take on Mexican hot chocolate. For peppermint hot cocoa, add a few drops of peppermint extract or stir cocoa with a peppermint stick or candy cane.

What toppings can you put on hot chocolate?

Jazz up your hot chocolate with a dollop of lightly sweetened whipped cream, or pile on the marshmallows! You can also sprinkle with some grated chocolate or chocolate shavings—even with some warm spices such as cinnamon or cardamom.

How do you reheat hot chocolate?

While a microwave will do the trick in a pinch, hot chocolate (like other warm and cozy drinks!) always warms up better on the stovetop. Heat hot chocolate over low to medium heat in a saucepan, stirring occasionally, until nice and hot.
