Last hot chocolates




When we were living in Italy, our year was divided in two parts, the ice cream season and the hot chocolate season. In Italy, of course, you can taste the best ice creams in the world, and also very nice hot chocolate is served there. La cioccolata calda is thick and not very sweet.

Since the hot choc season is coming to an end soon, it's time to dedicate some photos to this lovely beverage that contains flavonoids, antioxidants and pure happiness.

This is my favourite cup for hot chocolate. I like love its colour and the material that feels lovely to touch. Perhaps the set could be called breakfast ware, there are also saucers, bowls, mugs, a sugar bowl, and a small creamer, which I find especially cute (see the mosaic at the bottom of this post).




Dark or extra dark chocolate, milk or cream, sugar. Adjust the amounts according to your taste:




The cinnamon roll and the biscuits are just for the photo. In my opinion, the chocolate with whipped cream is so delectable and rich it doesn't need anything to accompany it. I have sprinkled cinnamon over the cream; powdered chilli or ground black pepper would be our other favourites.

  14. Your brown teacup is perfect for a hot chocolate with whipped cream Sara. We like to put marshmallows on top of ours, they might not look as elegant but they sure taste good as they start to soften. :-)
    I like to have some dark chocolate every day....health benefits. At least I'm not wanting to lick my screen. LOL
