When the weather outside is frightful, there's nothing better than a hot cup of cocoa to warm up your insides. Hot chocolate pretty much tastes like heaven served in a cup.
Well get ready because the coziest, sweetest time of year in Vancouver is almost here! The Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival brings some of the sweetest, wildest, and most delicious hot chocolate Vancouver has ever seen!
The Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival is finally back in less than a month, bringing some much needed warmth to the Vancouver winter. Last year, the festival featured 59 unique flavours from 25 participating cafés and restaurants, such as Vancouver favourites like Thomas Haas, Earnest Ice Cream, 49th Parallel, and more! So you can be sure you won't be disappointed this year.
Back for its 7th anniversary, this year the festival will run from January 19th to February 17th, 2017. The official lineup and drinks have yet to be announced, so stay tuned - you'll know when we know.
To make this event even sweeter, each hot chocolate is perfectly paired with a dessert. Last year, unique and delicious flavours such as miso white hot chocolate with matcha tea and sake, velvety red-tinted milk chocolate with cream cheese whipped cream, and a boozy, banana bread flavoured hot chocolate were available during the festival.
We can't wait for all the amazing hot chocolate that will be available during the festival. But until then, here are some mouthwatering pictures from last year to get you excited for what's to come.
