There’s something special about sharing a cup of hot cocoa with your kids after a day of sledding in Central Park or running around the city in the cold. And while you can grab a cup at any old corner bodega, you can make a really sweet memory at a NYC’s cafe that boasts hot chocolate that’s a step above the rest. Read on to discover where you can get hot cocoa in a waffle cone cup and other deliciously, creative concoctions.
Straight from the Chocolate Factory
How awesome would it be to cozy up with a cup of cocoa right at a chocolate factory? Well, head to Nunu Chocolates to find out. Not only is their flagship store and cafe outfitted for kiddos - a kid-level chalkboard for making art while they wait, pint-sized tables and chairs and a stack of old school board games at the ready - but also, as you sip on homemade cocoa (classic or spicy), you can watch chocolatiers dip caramels, fill truffle molds and make all kind of delicious looking messes.
Good to Know: Not in the mood for a cup of sugary-sweet chocolate yourself? Treat your kiddos and then order a glass of wine or a beer for yourself.
