Chocoholic: Parisian Hot Chocolate

Sweets Yvonne Ruperti 2 comments

Through serendipity I suddenly found myself in one of the best Christmas markets in Paris. Tiny chalets twinkling with holiday lights lined the tourist-filled street, selling everything from crafts to sausages and cheese. After spotting a long queue at the chocolate chaud (hot chocolate) booth, I couldn't resist the urge to practice my French and warm up a bit. More

Hot Drinks: Allegro Indian Spice 54 Drinking Chocolate

Drinks Maggie Hoffman 3 comments

I'm not thrilled about the arrival of winter, but I must admit that I do look forward to hot chocolate season. I'm a huge fan of Mariebelle's Aztec Hot Chocolate, but that stuff runs $20 for a 12 ounce tin, so it's more of a special gift than a frequent indulgence. I'm determined to find some other options that satisfy my cocoa craving for a bit less cash. More

Homemade 'Hershey's Syrup'

Serious Eats Bravetart 13 comments

To be perfectly honest, I enjoy this syrup best with only 5 ounces of brown sugar. The lower sugar version makes a deep, rich, sophisticated chocolate syrup. But not "Hershey's Syrup." The absolute hallmark of Hershey's is its sweetness, so to stay true to your childhood memories, stick with 9 ounces. More

Preserved: Raspberry Cocoa Jam

Sweets Lucy Baker 1 comment

Besides, what goes together better than berries and chocolate? This simple-yet-luxurious jam is practically begging to be slathered on fresh croissants, and it tastes pretty swell on a peanut butter sandwich, too. More
