Tidings of Chocolate and Joy: How to Build the Ultimate Dunkin’ Hot Chocolate Board

Want to give your next holiday gathering some extra oomph? Go beyond the traditional charcuterie board with a hot chocolate board! Meats and cheeses are great, but why not wow your guests with a selection of sweet treats and hot chocolate toppers they won’t soon forget?

This year, Dunkin’s got what you need to create a veritable smorgasbord of chocolate that’ll put a smile on even the Grinch-iest mug. Make the ultimate hot chocolate board for your next gathering of friends or family with Dunkin’ Hot Chocolate, donuts, and MUNCHKINS® donut hole treats. But don’t stop there- there’s no such thing as too much chocolate!

Try adding the latest items from our collaboration with Frankford Candy. The Original and Mint Dunkin’ Hot Chocolate BOMB™ are back by popular demand, along with two new flavors: Dunkaccino™ and Spicy Hot Chocolate, made with real Belgian chocolate and filled with mini marshmallows. These unique decadent treats are available for a limited time at select retailers, including participating CVS, Walgreens, Ross Dress for Less, Five Below, and Target stores nationwide, as well as online at frankfordcandy.com.

For a new take on holiday chocolates, try decking out your board with Dunkin’s limited edition Box O’ Chocolates. This decadent dozen is filled with chocolates in Dunkin’s most beloved donut flavors, like Boston Kreme, Brownie Batter and Chocolate Crème. Pick up a box at participating Walmart, Target, Publix, Kroger, Walgreens, CVS, and Rite Aid stores, as well as online at frankfordcandy.com.
