A family-friendly drink, a cup of hot chocolate is the perfect way to warm up on chilly days and satisfy your sweet tooth at the same time.

For the third year, Calgary’s Meals on Wheels has organized YYC Hot Chocolate Fest where coffee shops, restaurants, chocolatiers and hotels concoct delicious cocoas in support of the organization.

This year there are 15 vendors and 29 drinks vying to be voted Calgary’s Best Hot Chocolate, Calgary’s Best Spirited Hot Chocolate or The Cup that Runneth Over (the cup that raises the most funds).

Those who buy and drink the hot chocolate have an opportunity to win this year too. Every time you submit a rating for a hot chocolate, you’ll be entered to win a weekly prize from one of the vendors. And, don’t forget to take a photo of yourself and the hot chocolate, or just the mug itself for the “Mug Shot” competition. Tag @yychotchocolate and the vendor on Facebook or Twitter to be entered to win.
