Fictional Characters Who Deserve a Cup of Hot Cocoa

Hot cocoa may not be able to heal the world or fix its problems, but it is delicious enough to be momentarily comforting. (Pro hot chocolate tip: try dark chocolate hot cocoa with a churro for stirring—the sugar from the churro sweetens it just enough and is even more tasty soaked with chocolate.)

We're offering hot cocoa to these fictional characters who deserve a bit (or a ton) of cocoa comfort.

November Quirk Perk: Maple

Maple by Katie Webster: $3.99!

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Apple


Maple syrup is much more than a perfect topping for pancakes—it’s a simple and seasonal way to add welcome sweetness to every meal. From fast and nutritious entrees like Maple Tahini Chicken and Broccoli to more sophisticated fare like Maple Cider Brined Pork, these easy recipes will change your relationship with this familiar flavor.

And since maple syrup is paleo and vegan friendly (and naturally gluten free), almost anyone can enjoy such treats as Maple Bourbon Pumpkin Pie and Maple Pear Ginger Sorbet. Serve up the sweet taste of fall whenever you want it, with 100 no-fail recipes, plus tips on storage, substitution, and DIY syrupmaking.

Get the most out of your maple!

DIY: A Book Banana Split

A banana split is traditionally an ice cream-based dessert. But with a little imagination, you can make one with other things…even books. Although a book banana split may not be as delicious to your tongue as the real thing, its ingredients can be rather satiating to your soul.
