The Best Places to Grab Holiday Hot Chocolate in Abilene
Nothing pairs better with cold, blustery days and holiday lights quite like hot chocolate (or hot cocoa, if you're of the Yankee persuasion). While you could settle for mediocre mix from the grocery store or some national coffee chain, celebrate the season locally with hot chocolate from one of these awesome Abilene area shops.
Now don't be late for Winter Lightfest or Christmas Lane!
