When it comes to seasonal warming beverages, hot chocolates walked so pumpkin spicers could run.
Honestly, is there anything more comforting than a rich, creamy hocho? It's a hug when you're cold and hungover in work. It's a hand warmer when you're waiting for the bus. It's a way to bribe your children, nieces, nephews, younger siblings and whoever else may be acting the ham at any given time. And with hot chocolate season well and truly upon us, there are loads of delish new varieties to sample in cafes across Dublin. We're talking peanut butter hot chocolate, Nutella hot chocolate, the works. Please, join us on this warming, comforting journey.
