If your mouth is already watering, head to a Broderick’s vending machine near you to get your quick hot chocolate fix!
Le Chocolat Chaud
Say bonjour to this sweet treat from France. Le chocolate chaud is a rich, creamy, drinking chocolate made from chocolate shavings, milk, cream, and sugar. The chocolate flavour is so intense that it’s usually served with a glass of water to cleanse the palate. If you’ve got a real sweet tooth and a passion for chocolate… sip no further!
Churros con Chocolate
What’s better than a hot chocolate? A hot chocolate served with freshly deep-fried sticks of springy dough. This Spanish chocolate and churro combo takes the drink to a whole new level. Think doughnuts but long, crispy and dipped in a thick, glossy chocolate sauce. In Spain, this dreamy pairing is usually enjoyed at breakfast time. Can you think of a better way to start the day?
La Cioccolata Calda
When it comes to food and drink, do the Italians ever get it wrong? The answer is always no. La cioccolata calda is another intense variation of a hot chocolate with very few ingredients: dark chocolate, sugar, and milk. Simple but extremely effective, usually served with a dollop of whipped cream. Some variations of the recipe require a little corn starch for extra thickness.
