It’s currently 7degrees and being cold is an understatement. Nevertheless it’s perfect weather for a good old hot chocolate, and today I was able to enjoy a tall mug at Holly Brown (it was only $4 more than the short, so I just had to splash out a bit).
Apparently I wasn’t the only one who thought the same thing, as the barista kept calling out ‘tall hot chocolate’ from the counter and I think I accidentally jumped the queue by picking one up just after placing an order, but oh well I’m sure no one would’ve complained once they collected their caldron of chocolate:
They prepare the chocolate mixture by combining the powder with full cream milk and steaming it upon demand. It was quite sweet and incredibly rich, and thick!! Basically it’s a cup of warm melted chocolate hmmm… grab a couch, peel off the layers and enjoy nursing the mug over a good conversation:)
With the sharp weather and the rich hot chocolate I couldn’t help but reminisce of a winter trip to Venice, all wrapped up with ear muffs where we had the thickest melted chocolate I’ve ever had!! It was served in a double shot cup with cream on top and you had to sip it slowly as it was too thick to take it any other way. It was good and the Holly Brown hot chocolate comes very close. Go on, give it a go.
