Christmas might be over but the cold weather certainly isn’t it, making it more tempting to stay indoors curled up on the sofa watching films all day. We get it!

While we totally support that, we think something’s missing and that’s a hot chocolate in your hands especially since it’s National Hot Chocolate Day on Monday, January 31, 2022.

Whether you’re looking for new hot chocolate to try or you’re in need of a stock up, we have you covered.

We’ve rounded up some hot chocolate items as well as some of the all important trimmings – we’re talking marshmallows and chocolate toppings, obviously!
