Something amazing

Yesterday, I enjoyed drinking some liquid gold :)

We nipped into Caffe Vergnano 1882, partly because it had a sign on the door advertising that they had been named "coffee shop of the year", but mostly simply because it was freezing cold and it was the first cafe we had come across.

The menu was huge! A separate page for each type of coffee, tea, etc. and some really interesting sounding blends. I'm not much of a coffee drinker (ok, I can't stand the stuff), so I usually go for a nice cup of traditional English breakfast tea. However, I spotted the hot chocolate page and seeing as I haven't had it for a while, I treated myself. I decided against the hot chocolate and rum blend as it was only 11.30am (although it did sound rather interesting), and went for the hot chocolate and cream.

Oh wow.

It was like a melted Easter egg (a dark one of course) mixed with whipped cream.

Jeepers that looks decadent, and delicioius!

Sounds like the one I had in Italy. Basically melted chocolate in a mug (which is the only way I can drink hot choc- none of this powdered milky thin rubbish!)
