Nights in the desert climate of Greater Zion leave you wanting for a good mug of steamy hot chocolate. Our local foodie, @stg_eats, has done the laborious work of vetting these sweet chocolate concoctors and offers this list of favorites.
Grab a cup of warm and head out to see the Christmas lights, stroll through the Red Hills Desert Garden or Town Square.
But don’t let the holidays be the end. Hot chocolate flows here well into Spring and beyond.
If you’re looking for a quick stop for hot chocolate, Swig is a great spot! We especially liked “the Nutcracker” which has hazelnut and vanilla in it!
Another great, quick stop for some hot cocoa. We especially liked the one with raspberry and vanilla (don’t forget the whipped cream)!
Here’s another quality hot chocolate worth trying. I liked that they had milk choices too: whole, skim, and almond. They were the only place to offer me a nondairy milk choice.
They serve up a delicious Nutella hot chocolate. They also get bonus points for having the prettiest hot chocolate I tried.
They might actually take the cake for my overall favorite hot chocolate. Creamy, delicious, topped with whipped cream and sprinkles! It’s dreamy!
They surprised me with how good their hot cocoa was since they are known more for their burgers and fries, but their hot chocolate had a caramel flavor to it that I thoroughly enjoyed.
If you’ve heard about their famous chocolate milk, I learned that their hot cocoa is their chocolate milk heated up. I loved how creamy it was! They also have a kid’s temp and a regular temp, which I think is so smart!
It’s called “Cocoa Supreme” for good reason! It’s fantastic. But then again, I wasn’t surprised because everything they serve is top-notch! Plus they use homemade whipped cream to top it off!
Another good drive-thru with lots of add-in choices. I went with coconut and thought it was delicious! Their hot cocoa also came out at a great temp, not too hot and not too cold.
Gas station hot chocolate? Hear me out, if you’re looking for hot chocolate that’s easy on the wallet and tasty too, then Maverik is a great choice! I was also intrigued by the pumpkin spice hot cocoa and will have to go back and try it sometime.
