Posted by Gabrielle Jacobs on 21 May 2019

Winter is indeed coming and hot chocolate is the perfect drink to give you the warm fuzzies and all the chocolate endorphins. Here’s where you should stop off for some hot chocolate this winter, in Cape Town, Joburg, Durban, and Port Elizabeth.

The One&Only doesn’t only do what is reportedly ‘the best’ hot chocolate in the Mother City, but also has some decadent winter warmers in the warm cocktail department.

Joburg

Craft Restaurant, Parkhurst

Craft’s funky menu screams fun with over-the-top, decadent shakes and just as luxurious hot chocolate.

Craft is pretty good and indulgent when it comes to sweet indulgences, and the hot chocolate selection is no different, choose from your standard milk- and white hot chocolate with a few fine toppings or try the salted caramel or rum, dark choc and orange hot drink made from ‘real chocolate’. craftrestaurant.co.za, 0117887111, 33 4th Avenue, Parkhurst

Chocoloza, Braamfontein Werf

Owner Vicky Bain mixes a strong Belgian influence with African flavour for a fusion of cosmopolitan hot chocolate and more. You can bet there’s a Belgian hot chocolate, as well as sugar-free alternatives. The fun part is the getting your glass of milk and chocolate milk solids to dip in and stir through. @Chocoloza, 0109004892, 44 Stanlet Avenue, Braamfontein
