There’s nothing quite like hot chocolate. It’s heaven on earth...in a mug. It’s something so simple that is arguably loved by everyone.

Hot chocolate is a staple in winter, but sometimes the classic chocolate mix and hot milk doesn’t satisfy the sweetest of teeth.

We have a bunch of sweet tooths in the office who shared their favourite hot chocolate recipes to help you amp up your chocolate game!
