9 Outrageous Hot Chocolate Recipes to Try This Holiday Season

November 25, 2015

Coffee has always been my hot beverage of choice, but, this time of year especially, I love to indulge in a steamy mug of hot chocolate with my little girls. I've got a go-to hot cocoa recipe that always yields the perfect cup, but lately I've been in the mood for cocoa with a twist. Here's a roundup of a few of the hot chocolate recipes I've been looking to try.

1. S'mores Hot Chocolate
One of my favorite desserts in a drinkable, but no doubt just as messy, form. 

2. Lavender Hot Chocolate
A French Provenรงal twist on a creamy classic.

3. Salted Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate
Like a candy bar in a mug.

4. Spicy Hot Chocolate Mocha
A kick of cayenne and warm cinnamon combined with two of my favorite things--coffee and chocolate.

5. Red Velvet Hot Chocolate
A classic flavor with a Christmasy color. 

6. Almond Joy Hot Chocolate
Because I'm never opposed to anything that involves chocolate and coconut. 

7. Kahlua Hot Chocolate
A grown up version to drink with my husband as we wrap gifts when the girls fall asleep.

8. Ciccolata Calda (Italian Hot Chocolate)
A rich, elegant drink made with bittersweet chocolate.

9. Bacon, Bourbon and Hazelnut Hot Chocolate
..................... (because there are really just no words...)


  1. Kahlua Hot Chocolate would have to be my favorite! Tasty! It'll probably taste like a warm smooth banana split (at least that's what a cold Kahlua tastes like to me ) :-/

    1. Okay, I'm laughing out loud at the thought of a warm banana split!
