And sprinkle in some added fun, like artisanal marshmallows, whipped cream and crushed up graham crackers.  This activity is great for everyone (and their taste buds!). Savoring your creations near a crackling fireplace is also relaxing after an exhausting day on the slopes. Here’s a list of cool hot chocolate recipes from minty to super chocolatey.
