The holidays may be over but the coldest part of the year is just getting started. Nothing warms you up faster than a mug of hot chocolate, but sometimes taking comfort in a warm, sweet beverage is impractical. That’s when you should reach for one of the many new hot chocolate flavored foods on the market. In fact, hot chocolate flavored foods have become the flavor craze of winter just as pumpkin spice is now synonymous with autumn. The difference between hot chocolate foods and the marshmallow-adorned drink of your youth is that you’ll still get that coveted hit of hot chocolate without having to locate hot chocolate mix or heating up any water or milk. If only everything in winter could be as easy as satisfying a hot chocolate craving.
