Boston’s Best Hot Chocolate
Hot chocolate is easy to make, but a good, drool-worthy hot chocolate? That’s a different story. Personally, my favorite hot chocolates have similar qualities – creamy, rich, and most importantly, an intense chocolate flavor!
I rounded up a few of my favorite spots to sip hot chocolate. In the comments, please leave your favorite hot chocolate destinations – I’d love to know!
Besito Mexican. Besito Mexican serves up two Mexican hot chocolate blends – the Cocoa Caliente, a special blend of Mexican hot chocolate, and Café y Chocolate, a coffee and chocolate mixture, at their Burlington and Chestnut Hill locations.
L.A. Burdick Chocolate Shop & Cafe. If you love chocolate, then you know L.A. Burdick. With locations in the Back Bay and Harvard Square, L.A. Burdick is more than just a chocolate shop – it’s a sanctuary. You can choose your “drinking chocolate” from three variations – dark, milk, or white! The ultimate in richness.
The Thinking Cup. In addition to delicious coffee (and a perfect hazelnut latte!), I love The Thinking Cup’s hot chocolate. Although The Thinking Cup has several locations around town, I think that the indulgence of hot chocolate would be best enjoyed at their North End location.
Sofra. It’s been years since I’ve had the hot chocolate at Sofra (really, way too long), but it has made a lasting impression. Be sure to snag one of Sofra’s delicious bakery treats while you are there!
Tempo Kitchen + Cocktails. If you’re looking for a twist on the traditional hot chocolate, head to Waltham’s Tempo Kitchen for their peppermint hot chocolate. Plus, it’s topped with homemade whipped cream!
