I am so excited! I just found out the dates for the 4th annual Hot Chocolate Festival. It begins tomorrow January 18 and runs until Valentine’s Day February 14, 2014.
During this time frame you can visit any of the 25 participating venues serving delectable rich hot chocolate and drinking chocolate. Add flavours like hazelnut, caramel, cardamom and much more and you are in chocolate heaven! Last year I only visited one location, Chocolaterie de la Nouvelle France. A small unassuming shop tucked around the corner of Main St on 21st Ave, this space gave me the best chocolate drink I have ever had. It was rich, it was thick, it was a wall of chocolate. I actually had my chocolate craving satisfied for some time. I may not get drinking chocolate again due to its intensity and richness but I will have the milder hot chocolate.
