Mmmm…I love hot chocolate. When I’ve been outside in the cold, there’s nothing better than walking inside and heating up a giant cup of hot chocolate (especially with marshmallows!). But sometimes, plain ol’ hot chocolate is boring. Sometimes I crave something different. A new taste. A seasonal taste. And if you can believe it, there are lots of ways to make hot chocolate that go beyond the standard flavor we’re used to.
If you want to try hot chocolate that is sweeter, that is richer, that is a flavor you’ve never tried before, keep reading. These hot chocolate recipes are so enticing, you’ll want to make them even when it isn’t cold outside!

2. Frozen Caramel
Did you know that you can actually make frozen hot chocolate? I know it sort of defeats the purpose of having a hot drink, but there are days this time of year when the weather can’t make up its mind. On those days, a drink like this is great! You can still get in the spirit of the season, but you don’t have to “un-layer” your clothes because you’re burning up.
