Nothing beats a cup of hot chocolate on a cold day. Holding the mug in your hand while sitting on your couch is just such a cozy feeling. Winters can be very difficult to get through, especially if you suffer from seasonal depression due to the early sunsets, so anything that adds happiness is a wonderful thing. Hot chocolate is one of those things that can add a bit of positivity and calmness to your day. A joyful sweet moment you can choose to have on your own or with friends.
That being said, hot chocolate adds little to no nutritional value to your diet. Which is totally fine, but there is no way going around the truth, sugar isn’t good for you. Thankfully, not all sugar is created equally.
