A temperature drop in NYC means a longer queue at The City Bakery. And with good reason. The best hot chocolate in town can be found at this bright café tucked away off 5th Avenue.
When you smell the rich cocoa it might be tempting to order a large cup, but don’t – I promise you won’t be able to finish it. A small hot chocolate topped with a giant homemade marshmallow is exactly what you need on a wintry East Coast day. Yes, it will cost you $7.50 for just one, but it really is worth every cent.
The chocolate is sweet, dark, unctuous and velvety. The marshmallow is coated in icing sugar that will waft up into your face when you take a sip, catching you in the sweetest snowstorm. When you get past the powdered sugar, the giant mallow will have begun to melt into the decadent drink, leaving you with just enough time to take a sweet, sugary bite of this fluffy snowball.
