One thing my family can agree on is there’s nothing like a cup of hot cocoa, especially during the holidays. My children always associate the holidays with cookies and hot chocolate.
It started back with my grandmother who baked the most delicious cookies and spoiled us with a mug of hot chocolate. As full as we were from the cookies, we still drank our cocoa down to the bottom of the cup, and sported our chocolate mustaches for giggles. Every year it was the same thing and we always looked forward to it. We would sit patiently in the dining room watching her bake away in the kitchen. I’ll never forget that amazing smell that filled her kitchen and she continued this same tradition for my children.
My grandmother has passed, but her unforgettable tradition proudly lives on in our home. We love choosing which flavor of Stephen’s Gourmet Cocoa flavor we will be enjoying while sharing our favorite moments we remember of my amazing grandmother. It’s all smiles, tears, and laughs, but we will never forget those special moments. We always offer our cups up in the air to send a cheers to her up in heaven.
This year we decided to decorate edible gingerbread cookie tree ornaments and hang them on the tree. We each get to pick our favorite cookie tree ornament to go with our favorite cup of cocoa. My girls chose Stephen’s Gourmet Candy Cane Cocoa and the rest of us had a glass of the Stephen’s Gourmet Salted Caramel Cocoa. The cookies made a hit too! 🙂
A little about why Stephen’s wants to help make your holiday season memorable:
Every cup of cocoa you drink has to live up to the first one you had as a kid. Now that’s a tough job! Other cocoas might come close, but Stephen’s will set your new cocoa standard! Our cocoa is rich, creamy and quite simply the tastiest you’ve ever had. We are continually introducing new and unique flavors, as well as cocoa innovations like our Single-cups for Keurig®-style coffee makers. Stephens also offers a special selection of delicious ciders, whose traditional (and not-so-traditional) flavors make the perfect drink for any holiday.
Some of Stephen’s Gourmet signature cocoa flavors include:
- Salted Caramel
- Mint Truffle
- Dark Chocolate
