8 Perfect Hot Chocolate Recipes to Accompany Any Cold Weather Netflix Binge

If I’ve learned anything from peanut butter and jelly, the Olsen twins, and gin and tonics, it’s that many great things come in couples. Now, allow me to introduce to you the next great pairing: Netflix binges and hot chocolate.

It's still winter (SIGH) and most of us would rather stay hidden under blankets with our laptops than brave the cold for some old fashioned in-person socializing. As you curl up with your computer tonight, I encourage you to put down your glass of Diet Coke and pair it with one of these tasty drinks.

Mexican Hot Chocolate

Binge watching Scandal? ME TOO. Can it get anymore insane? It can if you curl up with a mug of Munchin With Munchkin’s spicy mexican hot chocolate for the next episode. You’ll be cozier than Olivia and Fitz in a cabin upstate.

Maybe you’ve become completely obsessed with Wicked Attraction or I (Almost) Got Away With It or Blood, Lies and Alibis. Maybe you wish you could watch all the shows at the same time. Maybe you should try solving these mysteries with some Kahlua hot chocolate from Damn Delicious.

Toasted Marshmallow Hot Chocolate

If you just noticed the documentary Bronies on Netflix then I have to recommend this toasted marshmallow hot chocolate courtesy of How Sweet It Is. It is almost as sweet as the documentary. (Also keep a tissue nearby because definitely Bronies made me cry.)

Date Night Hot Chocolate with Chocolate Ice Cream

In my opinion, Pretty Little Liars is the craziest TV show to ever grace our televisions but I am a fan for life. If you want to catch up, do it with Sugar et al’s “Date Night Hot Chocolate” with chocolate ice cream.
