8 Haute Spots for Hot Chocolate
Boots filled with slush, soaked mittens and numb-from-the-cold cheeks. Sounds like the perfect excuse to indulge in a round of hot cocoa with your kids. Sure, you could whip up an instant batch at home. But, as the days grow frostier, why not turn a simple sip into a full-fledged activity. Take a trip somewhere warm and cozy (featuring a different four walls than the ones you’ve just been staring at for hours) for a taste of the best hot chocolate NYC has to offer.

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.
