When the thermometer hits 60 degrees, it's chilly for Arizonans. That means it's time to whip up a warm cup of hot chocolate!

From there you can take a drive looking at Christmas lights, lace up the skates and zip around the rink, or chill by the fireplace with a good book.

To help you on your chocolate quest, we've rounded up a few spots around Phoenix to grab a one-of-kind hot chocolate! Scroll down to check them out.

FLUFF IT MARSHMALLOWS

Winter was made for this homemade marshmallow-making treatery in Gilbert. Fluff It serves a variety of gourmet marshmallows, including vanilla bean, salted caramel, s'mores and mini M&Ms. Since marshmallows go with hot chocolate, they have that, too! The s'mores hot chocolate is topped with a vanilla bean marshmallow, chocolate drizzle and a Graham cracker-dusted rim. If you want it frozen, that is an option.
