Hot Chocolate Picks for Winter Weather


Whether you are catching a show at WinterCity or going for a skate on one of the city's ice rinks - there is nothing better than braving the cold than with a steaming cup of hot chocolate.

I tend to like mine with lots of whipped cream and a light chocolate flavour - but am definitely no snob to the various types you can get in town. Many packed with a bittersweet punch, others than offer a twist from the ordinary...be advised, these are not watered-down instant bevie types.

My Top Picks:
- Luna Cafe for the fair trade kind.
- Chocolate Chai (milk chocolate infused with cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, clove and Darjeeling tea) from js bonbons.
- Hollywood Gelato's delicious Valhrona hot chocolate is top-of-the-line.
- Dark cocoa at Sen5es.
- Hot Chocolate as a visual art form at Bulldog Coffee.

PS. Let me know your hot chocolate spot.
