In­fuse sur­pris­ing fla­vor into your sip

The un­ex­pected add-in that’s a pop­u­lar or­der at New York City’s fa­mous City Bak­ery: ba­nanas! Just steep the peel in the choco­late as you heat it and re­move be­fore serv­ing. ( You can also use this tech­nique with or­ange peels.)

Make your own fla­vor­boost­ing spoons

Gourmet food shops sell spoons dipped in melted choco­late, but it’s easy— and much more af­ford­able!— to make your own. To do: Dip plas­tic spoons in melted choco­late chips, peanut but­ter chips, white choco­late or caramel and dry on a sheet of wax paper. Place the fin­ished spoons on a plate, then in­vite guests to fla­vor their co­coa with a stir!

cre­ative with marsh­mal­lows

Trans­form mini marsh­mal­lows into gi­ant star-shaped hot- co­coa top­pers. To do: Grease a star cookie cut­ter and place on a sheet of wax paper. Next, melt mini marsh­mal­lows in the mi­crowave un­til smooth and pour into the cookie cut­ter. Cool un­til set, then set atop a mug of co­coa!
