Perhaps the most favorite beverage for cold-climate areas this time of year is a cup of hot chocolate. What makes it even better is that there are alternative versions if the beverage that add some variety to the mix.
Several chefs in the Dallas, Texas, culinary community provided these recipes for the iconic hot beverage. This report by the Dallas News may warm you up to the idea.
I like the way Epicurious.com sums up the difference between the two beverages: “Hot chocolate, with its cocoa butter, tends to be richer than hot cocoa, but there are no hard-and-fast rules here.”
