15 Creamy Hot Chocolate Recipes to Warm You Up This Fall – Yahoo Life

While most of these 18 best hot chocolate recipes are perfect for the kiddos, a few happen to be a bit boozy, making them the ideal alcoholic hot chocolate recipes.

Living in a Southern state, we don’t have much of a cold weather season around here. Although, as soon as the holiday times roll around, I don’t care if it’s 80 degrees outside, I just crank up the AC and make a big batch of hot chocolates . Hot chocolate is not just warm and comforting for your body, it’s soul-warming too, especially around the holidays—and fall plus winter in general.

Best Hot Chocolate Recipes

To make hot chocolate even more interesting for the taste buds, it’s important to mix things up a bit. You may want to try something with caramel flavors, hazelnut flavors, different types of dark chocolate and you can’t forget the whipped cream and marshmallows!

There’s nothing like drinking spiked hot cocoa while curled up on a couch after all. And to make things extra decadent, throw some ice cream in your hot chocolate bars or add a candy cane straw!

Ahead, 18 of our favorite very hot chocolate recipes from the minimalist, classic version to the over-the-top decadent kind.
