Bonfire Hot Cocoa

From the months of October to March, I desperately need my hot cocoa fix. As an adult, with my own money, I’ve decided to invest in cocoa bombs. And of course, I have to load up on the toppings. Crushed cookies, coconut, and some graham cracker bits make for a perfect sip.


My obsession with hot cocoa has taken me to try something new. What if I were to mix tea with hot cocoa? The Maya Team got to work and made my dream a reality. They started with Bonfire Nights, a black tea specifically created to remind you of what it’s like to sit by a campfire. We use Lapsang Souchong to give the blend a nice smokiness as well as some cinnamon and cocoa nibs for some extra flavors. We even added some marshmallows so you know it goes well with the cocoa.


So what happens when you mix Bonfire Nights with Cocoa? Let’s just say, my October to March obsession got a little fancy. If you want to create a cool cup of cocoa, just check out this recipe!

I’m going to say something controversial. I like waffles more than pancakes. I’m going to say something even more controversial. I like both more than french toast. Don’t get me wrong, if it was up to me, I’d be enjoying all three at once, but I generally limit myself to one. Even if you’re on team pancakes or french toast, there is one thing that unites us all: syrup.

Cookies are usually one of the first baking recipes you get to try as a kid. The snickerdoodle is definitely a popular one during the holidays. A soft and chewy handheld treat coated with cinnamon and sugar. This cookie is great company to a warm glass of milk by the fireside. We captured this experience into a beautiful latte that will transport you back to your childhood.
