THERE ARE few things better when being stuck at home than a cup of hot chocolate. And since people are stuck inside for a long time, Swiss Miss has released chocolate drink recipes to shake things up a bit. First there is Peanut Butter Hot Cocoa: pour a sachet of Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate into a mug; add 180 ml hot water to dissolve the cocoa mix; add a tablespoon of creamy peanut butter, and gradually stir until well-mixed; top off with whipped cream. Then there is Caramel Hot Cocoa: pour milk into a mug and heat it in the microwave until it’s hot; add in half a teaspoon of caramel syrup and stir until fully dissolved; pour in a sachet of Swiss Miss Dark Chocolate; top with whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel. For Mocha Hot Cocoa: dissolve a sachet of Swiss Miss Chocolate Hazelnut into a mug of warm milk; add two teaspoons of instant coffee granules and stir until completely dissolved; for added flavor, top off with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. For Strawberry Hot Cocoa: heat a glass of strawberry milk in the microwave until hot; stir in a sachet of Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate until well-blended; top off with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cocoa powder. Finally, there is Mallow-loaded Hot Cocoa: mix Swiss Miss Choco Milk Blends (which comes with marshmallows that can be mixed in the drink or used as toppings) with a warm cup of milk; add more mallows and top with whipped cream; coarsely break a Graham cracker into small pieces and sprinkle on top.

Outdoor dining at Ayala Malls’ The Patio and Stop Bite

These are extended areas in lush gardens or spacious hallways where customers can safely eat outside confined spaces. With the opening of more spaces to accommodate dining, it consequently helps the restaurant merchants who are limited to the mandated seating capacity while providing options for customers who are out for work or on essential runs during the community quarantine. Both The Patio and Stop Bite areas are designed to follow social distancing protocols and strict sanitation measures are undertaken for the comfort and safety of the diners. Jennylle Tupaz, President of Ayala Malls, says that it is one of the initiatives taken to help bring more customer engagement within a safe haven. “We make sure that safety is still a priority inside our malls, while giving our customers more time to enjoy their day outside of their homes. Inside Ayala Malls, all health protocols are being followed, from the temperature checks and physical distancing practices, to our strict sanitation procedures such as regular cleaning. We want to be able to bring our customers safely to the next normal by giving them these little moments of leisure and respite that they have missed in the past months.” There are The Patio locations at the Ayala Malls Circuit Gallery Drive and Circuit Lane Connection, Ayala Malls Solenad Activity Park, and Alabang Town Center Corte and Corte Expansion. The Stop Bite locations are at the TriNoma Food Choices, Ayala Malls Vertis North Levels 2 and 3, UP Town Center Activity Center, Fairview Terraces Food Choices, Market! Market!
