You’ve probably been parenting long enough to know how to keep your kids warm. As the temperature draws closer to zero, week in and week out, the layers of clothing piled on your little one has gradually grown thicker.
Keeping your children warm in winter
Warmer clothing isn’t the only way to keep your kids warm though. Winter is the perfect time to bond over a hot drink with your little ones. While it’s common for adults to cosy up together over a cup of coffee, the same can’t be said about kids. So, what’s a parent to do when they want to share a hot beverage with their kids, but coffee is out of the question? Perhaps, find alternatives.
Luckily, there are plenty of hot drinks to keep your kids warm. Here are four of the best hot chocolate drinks to enjoy with your kids.
Classic Hot Chocolate
Who could say no to melted chocolate topped with ice cream or cream? If that’s enough to make your mouth water, how much more tempting will it be to your kids? Hot chocolate is to kids what coffee is to adults. If they could have a mug every day, they wouldn’t pass up the opportunity. So go ahead and treat your kids to this warm, chocolatey delight.
Peppermint Hot Chocolate
If hot chocolate is the kiddies version of a simple cup of coffee, Peppermint Hot Chocolate is similar to a cappuccino. This is for kids who like their desserts decked out with an assortment of the best toppings. Read this ingredient list out to your kid: Hot chocolate, peppermint syrup and milk, topped with Peppermint AERO® pieces and cream drizzled with peppermint syrup and BAR-ONE® sauce. Chances are, they’re begging you for a cup of warm sweetness.
Hazelnut Hot Choc
The nutty and creamy taste of hazelnut is something everyone should enjoy at least once in their lives. If that sounds like an exaggeration, it’s safe to assume you haven’t had the pleasure of snacking on a handful of hazelnuts. If your kids like hazelnuts, they’ll love this drink, which is dripping with hazelnut syrup. That’s not the only serving of sweetness in this drink. Your kid can also expect BAR-ONE® hot chocolate, milk, peanut nibs, cream and BAR-ONE® sauce in this sweet treat.
So, you’re sold on the idea of enjoying a warm drink with your kids, but haven’t a clue how you’re going to make them. The good news is that you don’t have to make them: Not if there’s a Milky Lane near you. The next time you and the kids brave the chilly weather to run some errands, swing by your local Milky Lane and treat them to a hot beverage. If Warm & Fuzzies could be put in a cup, they’d probably be found at Milky Lane.
