Two Dollar Delight
Today I had one of those perfect DC days, Christmas shopping in museum shops on the national mall. It was all made even the more fabulous by the salted caramel hot chocolate treat I had at the Christmas Market outside of the National Portrait Gallery. This two dollar Dixie cup-sized portion was the perfect sip of holiday cheer. (Cheesy post today? You bet!) It had a rich, dark chocolate base, which was complimented by the salty and sweet salt caramel flavor. I have been meaning to try Co Co Sala for quite some time, and I think this hot chocolate may have just push me over the edge. This thick concoction--served hot, but at a drinkable temperature--managed to be both sweet and a bit savory owing to the sea salt.
