Happy Cocoa Day!

Health benefits of hot chocolate or cocoa include antioxidants that help prevent heart disease and stroke. And it gives you such a lift on a cold day!

There are plenty of ways to make a cup of cocoa special. Try these at breakfast with your family, set up a cocoa fixings bar at work or your holiday party, or just make a special cup for you or someone you love.

Try adding…

  • Coffee
  • Whipped cream
  • A drizzle of Hershey’s chocolate syrup or caramel syrup on the whipped cream
  • Some red or green sugar on top of the whipped cream
  • Some sprinkles on top of the whipped cream
  • Marshmallows — which now come in a variety of flavors
  • A sprinkle of cinnamon
  • A pinch of chili powder
  • A twist of orange peel
  • A splash of egg nog
  • Any flavored creamer, such as hazelnut or pumpkin spice
  • A Stroop waffle
  • A candy cane stirrer (I like Spangler’s or Bob’s candy canes best)
  • A little Kahlua, Amaretto, Grand Marnier or Bailey’s Irish cream

Which way is your favorite?
