(Family Features) As a kid, the winter season was always a special time of year filled with snow days, ice-skating, favorite movies and fun board games. Bringing back carefree moments from winters past can be as easy as gathering together family and friends for game night and sipping your favorite wintertime drink – hot chocolate.

 

Nearly 70 percent of Americans agree that hot chocolate is the drink that most reminds them of their childhood, according to a new survey by Wakefield Research. This winter, while the weather is brisk, warm up by taking a flavorful walk down memory lane with these fun takes on the classic hot chocolate.

 

The Rocky Road Hot Chocolate and Gingerbread Hot Chocolate are heart-warming treats that ward off winter chills and satisfy your sweet nostalgic cravings. The key ingredient is the Limited Edition TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow milk. The rich, velvety-smooth milk combines your favorite chocolate and marshmallow flavors into a drink that’s delicious when enjoyed cold, and equally good when tried hot.

 

Like regular TruMoo, Chocolate Marshmallow milk is made with wholesome low-fat white milk from local dairies, and contains no artificial growth hormones or high fructose corn syrup.
