Well, it’s finally turned wintry here in Western New York, right in time for Thanksgiving. Just this past Friday it was 70 degrees, which is definitely strange for this time of year. So we are definitely due! But this means it’s time to start spending more time indoors out of the frigid temperatures, and lots more time getting warm and getting ready for the holidays. And for the girls and I, that means that it is definitely HOT COCOA season! There’s just something magical about hot cocoa – it warms you up, but at the soul level as well too. There’s just something about it! If you’re looking for a great hot cocoa, you have to try Stephen’s Gourmet Cocoa.
What I really love is how many different flavors of Stephen’s Cocoa that there is..here are just a few of their amazing flavors. You can check out all of their flavors on their website.
- Salted Caramel
- Mint Truffle
- Dark Chocolate
If you’re like my family and live in a place when it’s pretty cold November through April, you have to get creative and come up with fun things to do with the kids. For us, creating rituals is important and helps pass the time indoors. On of our favorite winter family rituals is family game night, which we like to have every week. This week, Stephen’s Gourmet Hot Cocoa made game night EXTRA special. We decided to try the CandyCane flavor. Check it out – you can actually see the specs of real candy cane in the cocoa!
Stephen’s Gourmet Cocoa is rich, creamy, and so tasty! It was a huge hit and will definitely be a recurring feature through the winter on all of our family game nights (as well as our other indoor activities!).
In addition to all of their amazing cocoa flavors, they also have single cups for Keurig®-style coffee makers, as well as a special selection of ciders. Don’t forget Stephen’s Gourmet Cocoa when you are putting together gift baskets for your kiddos teachers (don’t forget them this time of year!), your coworkers, your mail carrier, or anyone else you want to spoil this holiday season with an amazing hot chocolate! They make the perfect addition to all of your yummy holiday baking recipes, and they will also be the perfect treat for holiday parties – I know my friends would LOVE it if I served up some amazingly rich and creamy Salted Caramel hot chocolate from Stephen’s Gourmet Cocoa!
