Best Foods for Snow Days

Hot Chocolate

Hot chocolate is perfect for keeping you warm and happy during a snowstorm. The combination of milk, sugar, and chocolate is simple but satisfying. If you want to get more out of the drink, try adding toppings of marshmallows, chocolate chips, whipped cream or chocolate syrup. The sky’s the limit!

Chicken Noodle Soup

Another warm dish which has been used for centuries as a cold remedy, chicken noodle soup has properties which will make you feel better if you are under the weather. Hot soup is a decongestant which can help with a stuffy nose, and has a lot of protein and other nutrients. There are also plenty of vegetarian/gluten free alternatives if you are on a diet.


Macaroni and Cheese

Macaroni and cheese is a classic dish, and tastes amazing when rich with cheese and butter. You can easily make it from a box or by preparing a cheese sauce from flour, butter, milk and cheese and adding cooked noodles. One of the best variations is baked macaroni and cheese, which often has bread crumbs added.



Although traditionally a breakfast food, pancakes can be eaten at any time of day! They are easy to prepare, and can be modified for almost any diet. The best part about pancakes is the near-infinite topping combinations. Try adding whipped cream, fresh fruit, chocolate syrup, or almost any sweet topping. Experiment!



Pizza is good for every occasion, but tastes especially good when its cold outside. If you’re feeling ambitious, try making a pizza from scratch – there are plenty of easy to follow recipes online! There are plenty of toppings which can be added, but I won’t weigh in on the controversial pineapple debate, so I’ll leave it at that.
