Hot cocoa and skiing: you can’t have one without the other. With this in mind, executive pastry chef Danielle Riesz of five-star ski resort The Little Nell in Aspen, Colo., created a classic cocoa recipe that is sure to warm anyone up after a long day in the snow. Using Trudelia chocolate, cocoa powder, half-and-half, granulated sugar, and a pinch of salt, Riesz crafts an irresistible cocoa that is as idyllic and delightful as the snowy slopes of Aspen. It has all the joys of skiing on a brisk winter day — without any of the challenge!

Soup
Just picked this recipe up when I was in Iceland from a cookbook called Cool Dishes. I think kids might really like this recipe, and it's relatively healthy too! A dessert soup might tickle their fancy. The book recommends serving this with crumbled rusks.-Kumquat the Cat's friendThis recipe is courtesy of Kumquat the Cat's friend via Food.com.

In quaint downtown Denver, we found a spicy cup of cocoa sure to wake you up in the sleepiest of mornings. This shop, a small, family-owned business in the heart of Larimer Street, kicks their cocoa up a notch by using sweet ground cocoa, cinnamon, and cayenne to create their Caliente Cocoa. Use as much or as little of the cayenne as you want to give your cocoa a burst of flavor — but do it at your own risk!
