Picture it: there's a chill in the air, snow is lightly falling outside, the tree is lit, stockings are hung all the while cozying up next to the fire. A cold December night couldn't get any better than this, except one thing — a warm cup of hot chocolate. We don't mean just any cup of hot chocolate, but a crockpot hot chocolate graze board. The warmest cup deserves festive garnishes and the sweetest treats to nibble on while you sip. One taste of hot cocoa will leave you with visions of sugar plums dancing in your head all season long.
