As a natural rule-bending procrastinator, I have not started the challenge yet. It ends on November 17 this year and participants aren't allowed to count more than one coffee stop per day. Here are the shops I want to visit in hopes of finding Victoria's best hot chocolate:
The coffee shop at the corner of Alderbury St and Viewfield Rd
What I look for in a hot chocolate is sincerity. I want it to taste pure, unprocessed, chocolatey - but not too rich. I need it to taste better than what I can make on my own. Whip cream, marshmallows and sprinkles are welcomed, though they are best not to overshadow the feature drink. At the bottom of the cup, there is a pot of gold - all is well, and I live happily ever after.
