Finding Fabulous Hot Chocolate in Vancouver

Vancouver’s Best Cups of Hot Chocolate

As Vancouver starts to feel the winter chill, hot cocoa is a perfect way to warm the spirit, indulge is something luxurious, and share a moment. After the initial seasonal egg nogs, I turn to something less cloying, something more earthy and complex.  Cacao has a long history, considered sacred by the Aztec, and still revered for its mysterious nutritional benefits, it’s sure to take away the winter blues. I’m on a quest,… Finding Fabulous Hot Chocolate in Vancouver.
