Hot Chocolate Bar

“It’s the holiday season

And Santa Claus is coming round

The Christmas snow is white on the ground

When old Santa gets into town

He’ll be coming down the chimney, down.”

Now that Andy Williams has us in the Christmas mindset [you know, in case you weren’t already…], we are diving in to all things hot chocolate!
