Grand Finale: Hot Chocolate Tasting

Here’s a fun way to entertain kids and adults alike. Get five or six different brands of cocoa, from supermarket varieties up to the best gourmet stuff. Buy color-coded paper coffee cups, and give everyone a half cup of each to taste blind. Start with the first, discuss it: likes, dislikes, overall rating. Go through each one. Let everyone rank their favorites, then reveal the what they are. Not only is the activity fun, but it helps people develop their palates and learn how to discuss food.
