Isn't it a Lovely Day...for Some Hot Chocolate?

With rains beating down on us thanks to the arrival of a late season storm, this afternoon is just right for a cup of hot chocolate. Maybe you haven't thought about that hot, comforting, chocolate-y treat in a while, but we can't forget some of our favorite places to pick up a cup. We're wild about Lamill's $3 not-too-sweet hot chocolate, deep into Intelligentsia's ganache-intense offering, and sweet on NOLA Ice's red velvet inspired hot cocoa. Sometimes, though, nothing beats the cup of hot cocoa you brew up at home and curl up with on the couch. You can always hit up one of these spots for cafe-made cocoa tomorrow or Thursday...since that's about how long this storm's expected to last.
