HOt cocoa, Warm Cookies, Cold Winters
It’s that time of year when Kansas City transforms into a magical winter wonderland. The Country Club Plaza lighting, ice skating at Crown Center, and the Mayor’s tree lighting each give me those warm fuzzy feelings but what really gets me in the holiday spirit is sippin’ down on rich, creamy, hot cocoa and munchin’ down on warm holiday cookies! So I went on a quest to curate a list of my favorite spots to grab a hot cocoa and enjoy a holiday cookie (or 3).
Messenger Coffee Co + Ibis bakery
Grab a mug of Messenger Hot Cocoa and venture to their rooftop patio. I love to venture up here not only for the views but to snuggle up to this swoon worthy fire pit!

McLain’s Cupcookies are my go to when I need last minute holiday party cookies - $9.99 for 1 Dozen. Bonus: McLain’s offers a holiday cookie box stuffed with their seasonal treats and a custom gift message or company logo printed on a festive box.

I was already a fan of Monarch’s Hot Chocolate but the charred local marshmallows from the Modest Mallow is what really makes this hot chocolate one of my faves.
