Today: There's no better way to warm up this winter than with a mug of hot chocolate -- here are 5 ways to spice up your next batch.


Hot chocolate is one of the few redeeming things about the bitter cold months ahead. There's a childlike joy that comes from a big mug of it, full of even bigger marshmallows. Hot cocoa represents the best parts of this season -- the cozy, fireside version that we romanticize when the weather first starts to turn crisp.

But sometime in February, we may start to tire of the same old hot chocolate. Those idealized dreams of sipping one under a blanket in our pajamas fade, and we're all too aware that there's another 2 months of winter to go. That's why we need ways to -- quite literally -- spice up our hot cocoa routine. Here are 5 ways to make your favorite hot chocolate recipe new again.
