Hot Cocoa Gets a Makeover

Hot chocolate mix

There’s nothing that says holiday time like a smooth, silky, tasty cup of hot cocoa, that seems to wrap its warmth around you like a good hug from an old friend. Put a new twist on the old favorite. Hot cocoa is the perfect canvas for a variety of flavors! At your next party, make a holiday drink station by setting out cocoa mix, all the add-ins, whipped cream, toasted coconut, sprinkles…and let your guests have fun creating their own hot beverages!

Gingered Hot Cocoa: bring another layer of warmth to your cocoa by dropping a slice of candied ginger in, or peel a 1/4 inch cube of fresh ginger and seep in your mug until the ginger flavor is infused.


Old Fashioned Peppermint Stick Hot Cocoa: stir the cocoa mix into hot milk using an old fashioned peppermint stick. For a lower-sugar version, put a drop of peppermint extract in hot cocoa instead. Both are delicious!

Hot Chocolate

Cinnamon Stick Hot Cocoa: make the Creamy Dreamy Hot Cocoa mix, but stir in a tablespoon of ground cinnamon. When making your mug of hot cocoa, stir together using a fresh cinnamon stick.

Reese’s Hot Cocoa with Peanut Butter Swirl: you won’t be able to stop sipping this. Add 1 1/3 cup powdered peanut butter to the cocoa mix, and stir or sift together. Make a peanut butter swirl by taking 1/2 cup thawed whipped topping and gently folding in a teaspoon of creamy peanut butter. Dallop on top of hot cocoa, and let all the flavors melt together…and melt in your mouth.

Happy Holidays!

    You eliminated the best product that bore your brand name by dropping your Albertson’s branded hot cocoa mix.

    Sounds delicious, but who does you’re content editing?
    Dollop, not dallop
    You steep, not seep (one infuses flavor, the other implies leakage – water seeps under the door).
    The first sentence is a run-on, the following two sentences could be combined with a semi-colon.
    Sorry, but if you’re being professional, maybe a better editor is necessary.

    I would really like to see the ‘No sugar added Flavored Hot Cocoa Mix’ brought back into your stores. It was my favorite..
