Winter is a time for keeping cosy and there’s no better season to get some seriously good comfort food (and drink) in your belly.

And everyone knows Christmas time is no good without a drop of hot chocolate?

That’s why we’ve complied some of our favourite festive hot chocolate recipes to get you in the mood.

Because when your belly is warm, your heart is surely the same way!

Let’ start with the classic – with whipped cream and marshmallows.

It’s as simple as it sounds, watch TikTok user fitwaffle  show you how:

If you’re a bit more adventurous and like to add a bit of pzazz to your cocoa, why not try these?

FitWaffle has you covered again with the how-to’s.

Candy Cane Flavour

Fancy something a bit off the wall? Try candy cane flavoured hot chocolate.

It’s slightly fancier than the other recipes, with the term “creamer” being used for milk.

And of course, you’ll need to find candy canes.

It also takes a little longer to make but we promise it’s worth the wait.
