Isn't cold 'hot chocolate' another way of saying chocolate milk? Or at least, very similar, I should think. I've never heard of a kid not liking hot drinks, so that's a bit unusual. Is there a reason for that?
Our daughter doesn't drink her hot chocolate hot. She will leave it for 20 to 30 minutes to cool off or she'll add milk to it. I think you'd find a lot of children don't want to drink really hot drinks.
That sounds pretty normal to me. I have a four and two year old and of course they don't want hot chocolate hot. We make it and let it sit on the counter for about 20 minutes and then they drink it. By then it is room temperature and bordering on cold.
I don't think it is unusual for little kids to not like hot drinks. I know that I never did and my kids really don't either. I'm lucky that they like to drink water. We keep a gallon jug in the refrigerator.
I am all about cold chocolate. The difference between cold chocolate and chocolate milk is that there are usually marshmallows in the cold chocolate. That makes a big difference. And cold chocolate tastes much sweeter.
