  1. Oh wow, you have some super fancy hot chocolate recipes here! I love the look of the store’s version, although I always tend to go for the old faithful traditional hot chocolate myself :)

  2. Oh boy I’m on chocolate overload right now. I know it’s the holidays but seriously I just ate a whole bag of these peppermint dark choc candies from Trader Joes, in 48 hours! I cannot be trusted with chocolate!

  3. I love Peppermint Hot Chocolate. Actually I love anything with peppermint and chocolate this time of year. The pumpkin hot chocolate sounds so unique. I never would have thought to put these flavors together.

    1. I was inspired when I found this pumpkin hot chocolate too! Pumpkin spiced lattes are yummy, so I have to believe a pumpkin hot chocolate would be equally delicious!

  4. HAHA! I didn’t even have to make it all way down the list before I pinned and tweeted this post!! I love hot chocolate and so do my babies, we’re going to have to try some of these recipes, for sure!

  5. That s’mores hot chocolate…oh my goodness! That looks absolutely amazing. Actually this whole list looks awesome. We are having a big (huge, enormous, crazy) Christmas Eve party, and I was thinking about doing a hot chocolate bar for the kiddos.

    1. Oooh, a hot chocolate bar would be so much fun! Your kids will have a blast. You could also include a few extra add-ins like coffee or Irish Cream to make it special for the adults if you have a crowd. So much fun! :)
