Cozy Hot Chocolate Recipes to Try

Fall is the time we turn to that old favorite of most of us, that warm and comforting cup of hot chocolate. There are a host of ways to make this family favorite, aside from the traditional cocoa powder, milk, and a dollop of whipped cream on top.

Mexican Hot Chocolate tickles the tastebuds with a pinch of chili powder and a sprinkling of cinnamon. There’s a drizzle of chocolate syrup in there, too, for good measure.

Candy Cane Cocoa is especially good as we get nearer to Thanksgiving and Christmas. It has that holiday feel from crushed candy canes. Save some crushed candy canes to sprinkle on over the whipped cream on top and the kids will love using a candy cane as a stir stick.

Peanut Butter Cup Hot Chocolate quickly becomes a family favorite. Simply add a couple of teaspoons to your regular hot chocolate and it will be transformed. This rich, chocolaty, peanut buttery goodness will warm you right up.

Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate is perfect for fall. You can add pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin pie spice to your hot chocolate for this unique treat. The fragrance alone will be enough to make you smile.

There you have it, four new hot chocolate recipes to try this month and next. We think you’ll make them part of your hot chocolate menu from now on. You can find the recipes for these evening treats at AllRecipe’s Hot Chocolate. Happy camping and hot chocolate sipping to all this season. We look forward to seeing you around the campfire.
