5 Ways to Top Off Hot Chocolate

Sipping hot, chocolatey goodness almost makes the chill of the cold, cold winter months worth it. Almost.

But, there’s always room to crank up the heat. Here are five easy mix-ins to top off your instant hot chocolate.

1. PEANUT BUTTER

Peanut Butter
If you’re nuts for this savory snack, add in a tablespoon or two until it melts into the cocoa — creating a mouthwatering combo.

2. MAPLE SYRUP

Maple Syrup

Add in a drizzle or two of this pancake topper to give the drink an extra sugar-kick.

3. ICE CREAM

Ice Cream

Get the best of both worlds and scoop in your frozen favorite, making the cocoa thick and creamy-smooth — a perfect late-night snack.

4. THE WORKS

Whipped Cream, Candy Canes & More

When we say “the works,” we mean it. Whipped cream, marshmallows-galore, glitter sprinkles, all toppled with chocolate fudge. Brownies? Cookie crumbles? Sure, why not. Anything in the dessert-realm is welcome in this extreme take on cocoa.

5. HOT SAUCE

Wait, what? This is no joke. A lot of Mexican dishes actually use the cocoa-chili pairing. Mixing the spicy sauce with the cocoa jazzes up the drink for a sharp, show-stopping taste to top your night off.
