With an unspeakable amount of mugs and a growing collection of knitwear, it’s not difficult to see that I have an obsession with all things cosy.
This blog started out as a very simple idea: it would be a collection of reviews and recipes and musings on where hot chocolate fits into the bigger picture of life. It’s now become a place where I can share some personal experiences too – though hot chocolate is undeniably the focal point.
So, why hot chocolate? Simply put, hot chocolate is something that holds a lot of memories and significance for me. It’s the treat I share with my little sister when I pick her up from school in winter, and it’s what I drink when I meet up with old friends at train stations or in places we haven’t been to before. It’s what I spike with Malibu on film nights with friends, and it’s what my best friend and I make before wrapping up in the world’s biggest blanket on bitterly cold days.
The aim of this blog is to find a recipe for the perfect hot chocolate – one that is warm and dark and sweet enough that it is not only a drink but an experience, and a memory.
