13 Hot Chocolate Recipes That Will Change the Way You Feel About Winter

Other than shopping for presents, decorating the tree, and enjoying that first snowfall, nothing makes it feel more like the cheery winter season than sipping on a warm mug of creamy, sweet hot chocolate.

We’re not talking the powdered stuff from a packet, either. Making hot chocolate from scratch is surprisingly easy, and you’ll definitely want to whip up a batch to pair with your favorite traditional holiday cookies.

Making it from scratch also means you can play with the flavors a bit. Add a dash of cinnamon, or a bar of melted white chocolate; stir in some espresso and peppermint, or keep things classic. Either way you’ll have something in your mug that will warm you through and through and put a smile on your face. Just don’t forget the whipped cream.
