Today is National Cocoa Day, the perfect day to whip up a nice cup of hot cocoa to keep you warm.
It’s not only a delicious and satisfying treat on a snowy day—hot chocolate is also the star of this do-it-yourself word find. When completed, the puzzle will contain words reading in all directions—both forward and backward vertically, horizontally, and diagonally. Your job is to fill in all the words in their proper directions. We’ve placed the first letter of each entry into the grid. You’re finished when there is a letter in every square, except the black squares; these are “stops” over which no entry can jump. We’ve started you off with COCOA, but don’t get steamed if you need to check the answer.
