During those cold winter days, nothing beats a cup of hot chocolate. This year is the first annual Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival. The festival started January 15th and runs to February 13th. In support of their favourite charities, six top chocolate makers and one gelato guy will spike their hot chocolate drinks with the wildest, most delicious flavours they can dream up.
Although my personal favourite hot chocolate in town from Blenz Coffee isn’t involved, I will definitely make my way to each and every location to see what they can come up with. Plus it’s for a good cause so why not.
