As winter approaches, we are falling in love with the new variety of cozy smells offered in the Thymes Hot Cocoa Collection. Inspired by sweet ingredients that fill kitchens and dining rooms during the chilly seasons, Hot Cocoa is offered in Peppermint, Dark, and Milk Chocolate fragrances.
Though this trio of beautiful scents offers a guilt-free way of enjoying delicious chocolaty cocoa – we indulged our sweet tooth and spent an afternoon baking Hot Cocoa Collection inspired treats!
Taking a normal brownie recipe, we put a Thymes-twist on it by mixing in some favorite additions, creating a unique and finishing touch to this sweet (and arguably a most favorite) treat.
Inspired by the Hot Cocoa Peppermint fragrance, we suggest crushing up peppermint candies, creating a refreshing crunch when mixed into the brownie before baking, or as a dusting of flavor on the top of a finished batch.
For an extra yummy twist inspired by Hot Cocoa Dark Chocolate fragrances, add a variety of bright sprinkles and powdered sugar on top of dark chocolate brownies. Go bold with red or other bright colors!
If you’re looking for a classic favorite, melt marshmallows and small chocolate pieces into your brownie mix, turning it into a delicious and dreamy indulgence inspired by our Hot Cocoa Milk Chocolate Candles
Any one of these will instantly become a favorite and you may even fall more in love with the Hot Cocoa Collection fragrances after playing in the kitchen all afternoon!
And if you can’t spend the day in the kitchen, just pick up some ready-made brownies at your local store and light your favorite Hot Cocoa candle before holiday guests arrive. It will smell as if you have been busy baking sweet treats all day!
Added bonus? The Hot Cocoa’s ceramic candle mugs are ideal for re-use, long after the candle is gone.
