Tired of the Same Old Acidic Drinks at Diwali Parties? Whip Up These Chocolate Concoctions for Your Next Diwali Party!

The season for chocolate gifting and receiving is here and there is no better way to celebrate it than to serve chocolate drinks at your Diwali party! You will need someone to man the mixer, of course, because some drinks are meant to be had fresh from the blender.

Drinks are often overlooked when it comes to Diwali parties, especially with the desi fare that comes with savories like pani puri with its imli water, or spicy jaljeera with boondi floating on top. These are great, but how about kicking it up a notch and adding some sweetness to the drinks? After all, it is the festival of lights, where we don’t count calories.

Think mocha frappes, hot chocolate, fondues or even molten hot chocolate that will be a delight among kids as well as adults who take their sugar seriously. We’ve got a little something that ain’t so sweet even, coffee and dark chocolate! Here’s how you can whip up these dessert-like drinks right in your trusty decorative glasses:

1. Cadbury Bournvita Chocolate Drink
