As our days of holiday indulgence wind down, there’s nothing sweeter than donning your new Christmas sweater, lighting a few candles and sipping on some of the finest hot chocolate around.

In our quest to brighten Winter nights we’re taking 20% off all candles today through December 31st! We’ve also asked Marge, our gift guru, about some of her favorite hot chocolates. So grab your snuggly jumper, put on the kettle and get cozy!

Askinosie Single Origin Sipping Chocolate – Real morsels of single origin dark chocolate. Combine with heated milk or heavy cream to create an indulgent and deeply-flavorful sipping chocolate. The chocolate bits are also produced in their bean-to-bar factory, using cocoa beans sourced directly from Cortés, Honduras.

Fran’s Hot Cocoa – Dedicated to preserving the pure, clean flavor of chocolate, Fran's is renowned for creating intense chocolate notes with a seductive texture.  Fran Bigelow is considered a pioneer of the artisan chocolate movement in the U.S. Her mastery of chocolate allows her to bring out its depth and complexity by building layers of flavor that heighten the experience. This confectioner extraordinaire was recognized in 2009 as “Outstanding Fine Chocolatier – North America,” by the Fine Chocolate Industry Association and “the best overall chocolatier in the United States,” by The Book of Chocolate. Indulge in the decadent taste of this award-winning 65% Venezuelan Dark Hot Chocolate.

Saxon Chocolates – Saxon’s mission is to bring gourmet chocolate made in the Belgian tradition to the North American market. They adhere to the highest standards of chocolate making and use only pure, carefully sourced ingredients in each of their small-batch creations for the smoothest, richest flavors. These Belgian hot dark chocolate singles are available in peppermint or plain (which is anything but). Great for on the go!


Blanxart – Blanxart handcraft their products using traditional Spanish recipes, selecting and roasting their cocoa beans to ensure the best quality, taste and texture. Their techniques produce some of the world's finest cocoa. Chocolate a la taza is a thick and decadent sipping chocolate enjoyed throughout Spain. It can be used as a drink alone or as a rich accompaniment to churros and other pastries. Simply mix the powder into hot milk until it is almost as thick as pudding and serve!
