I don't know about you, but when the weather cools down I could drink hot chocolate just about every day. I love chocolate, first of all.... but I also love how it helps to warm you up from the inside.

There is something special about enjoying a day out in the snow and then coming inside for a warm glass of hot cocoa.

These chocolate covered peppermint sticks are a great way to enjoy your festive treat while also adding some delicious flavor to your hot chocolate.

Enjoy your holiday hot chocolate with some fun festive desserts like our Rudolph cookies, mickey donuts or holiday elf brownies!
