January 25th, 2013. Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival!
It came to my attention that Vancouver has this newer fesitval going on each year… The Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival! Participating patisseries, chocolatiers, and cafes in and around Vancouver offer a special hot chocolate and treat. Kind of a mini-dine out with chocolates! This is definitely my kind of festival!
I searched for any participating places in the tri-city area and I found that Rubens Chocolates in Port Moody was the only one nearby! So I made it out there for the De Dutchie! A Spice Cookie Hot Chocolate inspired by the Netherlands accompanied by a Dutch Spice Cookie!
I love when they use spices with chocolate and this was no exception. Adding a depth to the flavor and just some extra sparkle this was so so yummy and wonderfully warming for this wet and dark winter night! They also included a chocolate on my plate as well 😀
