I'll be honest I don't always drink hot chocolate, but I do around the holidays. There is something about having a nice mug of hot chocolate at Christmas time and with just a few days left till Christmas, I thought we should run down some great options locally for a great mug of hot chocolate.

For me a good mug of hot chocolate has to include a heaping pile of whipped cream on top, no whip cream...I'll pass on the hot chocolate. It has to have whipped cream.

Another thing that I want to bring up....whenever I watch a Hallmark Christmas movie they always drink "hot cocoa". So what is the difference? lol is it just a "name"? hot cocoa or hot chocolate ... which is it and why?

According to Google "Hot Cocoa has a thinner consistency and tends to be creamier and sweeter because of the additives. True Hot Chocolate, on the other hand, is much richer and denser; it can also have bittersweet notes depending on the type and percentage of pure cacao used as the base."
