Simplifying NYC: Top Picks for Hot Chocolate

Hello Fabulistas! Although I’m starting to miss the heat of summer, I’m excited for fall and winter. That’s because it’s hot chocolate season! Hot chocolate is one of my favorite cold weather drinks. It’s sugary, delicious and makes me feel like a kid again! There are several places to get a fab hot chocolate in New York City, but here are my faves.

Max Brenner

Yes, this is a chain, but it’s an amazing chain! Max Brenner is focused on chocolate so you know they know how to do it right. My fave is the Italian dark hot chocolate, it’s like a liquid chocolate bar. There are so many choices, you’ll be able to find one that you love.

MarieBelle

MarieBelle is one of my go-tos when I’m meeting the ladies or picking up a gift for friends. They have both hot and iced chocolate, both of which are fab! If you walk to the back of the Soho shop, you can meet friends, drink hot chocolate and have a snack.
