Holiday Candy Inspiration: Cooking Up the Ultimate Hot Chocolate

It’s the perfect time to settle in with a rich and delicious cup of hot chocolate. Check out these hot chocolate hacks to try this season!

With temperatures plummeting and winter holidays rapidly approaching, folks all around the country are breaking out their winter favorites. It’s the perfect time to don a cozy sweater, put on a classic holiday film, and settle in with a rich and delicious cup of hot chocolate. Whether you’re a die-hard fan of made-from-scratch cocoa or you’ve stocked up on packets of instant hot chocolate, there are plenty of ways to upgrade your creations with the help of holiday candy from Wockenfuss. Keep these hot chocolate ideas in mind the next time you’re craving a cup of cocoa, and let your creativity flow with these holiday candy hacks.

Making the Easiest Ever Hot Chocolate

What’s your go-to hot chocolate recipe? Melting solid chocolate in milk is a straightforward method for making hot cocoa at home. Still, some folks prefer the convenience of instant hot chocolate. Starting with instant hot chocolate makes crafting a cup of cocoa a snap, but hot chocolate bombs make things even easier. Pick up some Jelly Belly Double Chocolate Hot Chocolate Bombs from Wockenfuss for the easiest ever, one-step hot chocolate recipe. Simply place your hot chocolate bomb in a mug, cover it with twelve ounces of hot milk, stir, and sink into the taste and aroma of rich hot chocolate. For a similar “one and done” hot chocolate recipe, try our hot chocolate spoons! Each wooden spoon features hot chocolate mix coated in milk chocolate, just waiting to be stirred into a cup of hot milk.

Marshmallow Toppers are the Latest Holiday Candy Craze

Hot chocolate and marshmallows go together like peanut butter and jelly, and marshmallow toppers are the latest holiday candy craze to take the world by storm. Wockenfuss offers three different types of marshmallow toppers: salted caramel, mini marshmallow, and dark chocolate peppermint. Float one of these pillowy marshmallows on top of your next cup of hot chocolate or coffee.

Make Your Own Gourmet Hot Chocolate Bar

The ultimate hot chocolate concoction wouldn’t be complete without toppings! Create a hot chocolate bar for your next family movie night, holiday party, or get-together with friends. Set out hot chocolate, cute mugs, and a smorgasbord of toppings like whipped cream, Christmas nonpareils, peppermint bark, and more. Nothing screams “decadence” quite like a piping-hot mug of rich chocolate, piled high with whipped cream and all of the gourmet candy you crave!
