It's freezing outside. Literally freezing. I woke up on Tuesday morning and it was -10 degrees outside. That is the equivalent of me walking outside for a second, having my nose freeze, and then deciding to watch 12 episodes of Breaking Bad in one sitting (this happened on New Year’s Day). I love me some winter, but holy frozen goose turds, it is COLD outside.
As a person that runs pretty hot at all times, you would think I would be perfectly fine and suited for this type of weather. Spoiler alert: I am not. That is why I need to get warmed up, and what better way to do that than with a piping cup of hot chocolate?
I am sort of a hot chocolate connoisseur. Rich, dramatic, dark-toned notes tickle your tongue and dance the dance of deliciousness for a party of one. Oh, and don’t forget burning the hell out of your mouth from time to time with the power of the sun itself. Fun Fact: I actually have never had a cup of coffee in my life. So, when people ask me to go out and grab a coffee, I always have to do a quick double-check to make sure that they have the cocoa in stock for Coco (the name I always tells Starbucks to write on my cup).
Below are my top Dayton spots to grab a cup of hot cocoa on these bitter cold days!
