I agree with the previous replies: more bonds (greater molecular complexity) contributes to a higher heat capacity. To add to previous responses, this property stems from the fact larger, more complex molecules can move (vibrate, rotate, etc.) in more ways. More options for motion leads to more energy needed to break the bonds holding these molecules together.
