The Weather Outside is Frightful...

...but chocolate is always delightful.  If you need a pick-me-up before the holiday, Gallery Place has two sweet options.

Before browsing the downtown holiday market (which continues through Thursday), I recommend you head to Co Co Sala, belly up to the bar, and order one of their utterly indulgent, rich, and delicious cups.  You can choose from dark chocolate, salted caramel, or pumpkin spice.  For $6, this shareable cup of richness is a treat.  I wish they would sell these concoctions at their to-go shop, or, at the very least, in smaller portions to-go. But you can opt for any of these choices frozen in the rare event of a holiday heat wave.

If you want a bit more oomph with your chocolate, walk up a few blocks to Poste.  Their chipotle spiked hot varietal ($11) couples smooth chocolate with a stiff kick of rum and bourbon.

I highly recommend either option for a treat that will definitely put a smile on your face, and provide just the right amount of liquid heat to brave the cold.

  1. Hot chocolate guide--what a great idea! :) That salted carmel one sounds delish, may have to stop by...
