4. French Hot Chocolate Recipe – If you’re a major fan of super dark, rich chocolate, then this is the hot chocolate recipe for you! This is not your ordinary cup of cocoa. It’s thick and velvety – just like le chocolat chaud they serve in Paris. Basically, a chocoholic’s dream come true.

5. Nutella Hot Chocolate – Let’s just admit it, Nutella makes everything better, and hot chocolate is no exception. You’ve gotta try it at least once this season.
