People Can’t Stop Making Hot Chocolate Boards Right Now, and We Love the Trend
Just when you thought hot cocoa couldn't get any better!
Let’s be honest—one of the reasons to look forward to cold weather is the return of all kinds of warm drinks. When September rolls around, we’re back to sipping pumpkin spice lattes, and when things get even frostier, we’re content to warm up with a delightful cup of hot cocoa.
The internet has somehow found a way to improve on perfection with the hot cocoa board.
It’s Like a Cheese Board—but for Cocoa
That’s probably the best way to describe what these boards do; they offer hot cocoa fans a wide variety of treats to add to their steaming beverage. There aren’t a whole lot of rules here—basically, if you think it would taste good in a cup of hot chocolate, you can plunk it down on the board. The sky’s the limit!
How Can I Make One?
Basically, if it’s sweet and complements the flavor of chocolate, it has a home on a hot chocolate board. If you’re looking to make your board holiday-inspired, add candy canes, marshmallows and seasonal cookies. You’ll also want to include whipped cream and other fun stuff, like chocolate-covered pretzels. Yum!
