Best Local Spots for Hot Chocolate in Greater Lansing

December 13th is National Cocoa Day. Now that’s something to celebrate!  A steamy cup of hot cocoa is the perfect way to warm up after being outside in the cold. I think my kids go outside in the winter specifically so they get hot chocolate when they come in 😉 

If you’re looking for a place in Greater Lansing to grab a cup of hot chocolate you don’t have to go very far. We have plenty of options! Here are our favorite places to grab a cup!

Blondie’s Barn is a staple breakfast (and lunch) spot in Haslett. They serve up huge portions of delicious grub and their hot chocolate does not disappoint. They also give back to our community, which is one of the many things Lansing Area Littles loves about them.
