Nearly 70 percent of Americans agree that hot chocolate is the drink that most reminds them of their childhood, according to a new survey by Wakefield Research. This winter, while the weather is brisk, warm up by taking a flavorful walk down memory lane with these fun takes on the classic hot chocolate.

Like regular TruMoo, Chocolate Marshmallow milk is made with wholesome low-fat white milk from local dairies, and contains no artificial growth hormones or high fructose corn syrup.

    Thank you so much for this deliciously warming selection of Hot Chocolate Recipes. With temperatures in winter plummeting to 1C, it is just what our family need, and is so warm and comforting. I love drinking hot chocolate on cold winter evenings.To beat the contrasting blistering heat of our 44C in the shade summer days, we serve chocolate “on the rocks”, or chilled lattes.
