It’s too cold for just about anything right now. The good news is, hot chocolate makes everything better. (Even hot cocoa-flavored Oreos, and let’s face it, those delicious little cookies didn’t even need improvement.) Of course, you can always make your favorite totally unique cocoa recipe. Or you could fancy up one of those store-bought packets. On a day like today, you might even be tempted to go all out and stir together one of these alcoholic versions. But let’s be honest: one of the great joys of guzzling hot cocoa is being rewarded for braving the elements. These over-the-top hot chocolates are totally worth putting on pants – and mittens, because brr.
