Warm clothes, a fireplace, Christmas lights and a cup of hot chocolate that feels like a warm hug is all one needs in winter. The city is getting colder by the day and all I can think of is a cup of hot chocolate that is thick and smooth. For anyone who is clueless about this magic drink, Hot Chocolate is usually made of milk, sugar and cocoa powder in which one can make additions of heavy cream, dark/milk chocolate or even marshmallows. Here is a list of places where you can find an excellent cup of this magic drink.
I detest a hot chocolate that is watery or milky, and my quest to find the perfect cup took me to Cravity. The Hot Chocolate here is perfect for people who prefer it extremely thick and indulgent. It does feel slightly heavy but it is worth every calorie.
