Happy National Hot Chocolate Day! Everyone loves a good cup of hot cocoa, and this day has come just in time for another snow day (as they have predicted about 7 inches tonight!). Anyone can really learn how to make hot chocolate, but making it in the right way, with the perfect amount of chocolatey deliciousness, can be a bit tough. We’ve put together a short list of our favorite spots to treat ourselves to this winter beverage around Chicago. Enjoy a cup (or three!) of hot chocolate today, and be careful not to burn your tongue!
1. Mindy’s Hot Chocolate– pick your cocoa percentage and enjoy this baby with fluffy house-made marshmallows
2.Xoco– a selection of authentic, classic, aztec and more, each of these is made form mexican cacao beans for an extra rich flavor. Try dunking their crispy churros in one of these.
3. Katherine Anne Confections– Bitter-sweet chocolate and extraordinarily rich, this cup is more of a dessert than a beverage. Enjoy it with a home-made marshmallow or whipped cream, your choice.
4. Benny’s Chop House– An adults only Irish-inspired chocolate cocktail. Trust us when we say this will be a happy hour.
