I'm not sure anyone needs any more reasons to drink MORE hot chocolate this time of year, but here's another:
According to a new study out of the University of Birmingham in England, drinking hot chocolate can make you smarter! YUP, SMARTER!
The researchers say it's because of some molecules in cocoa called flavanols and they make your brain work faster and more efficiently.
There's only one downside: If your brain is already functioning well, the flavanols won't help you out.
Okay twist my arm... I’ll drink more hot chocolate.
