The Hub Hot Chocolate Crawl #HubBKHCC
It’s way too cold outside, but that doesn’t mean you have to hibernate and fret about it. It’s the perfect time to treat yourself to a nice piping cup of hot chocolate. There are several places within a few blocks that will put the powdered stuff you are used to, to shame. So that’s why we came up with the Hub Hot Chocolate Crawl (#HubBkHCC) so you can experience all the wonderful hot chocolate just outside our door!
STOP ONE: The Chocolate Room
The Chocolate Room is the perfect place to start. Not only is the hot chocolate superb, they also have an amazing selection of high-end chocolates, extraordinary desserts, handmade ice cream, dessert wines, beers, and superb coffee (in case you need an energy boost to carry yourself to the next stop on the #HubBkHCC!).
STOP TWO: NuNu Chocolates
We’re not gonna lie to you – we almost didn’t make it past Nunu Chocolates when we did the #HubBkHCC. You can literally spend hours watching them make chocolate from scratch while sipping a hot chocolate drink, latte, or glass of wine (we double fisted the wine and hot chocolate). If you’re really looking to indulge, you can take some of their caramels or truffles home with you to enjoy!
STOP THREE: Betty Bakery
Betty Bakery has treats inspired by the ones that used to come out of your grandma’s kitchen—but with an updated twist. Their hot cocoa and treats will take you back to the good old days, when your grandma would let you have all the sweets you wanted and wouldn’t tell your parents about it!
While unrelated to the #HubBkHCC, we HAD to tell you that Betty’s does deliver via Postmates! We are sorry if we just destroyed the beach body you’ve been working on at Club 333, but we know you’d be mad at us if we didn’t let you know.
BONUS STOP: Jacques Torres
Jacques Torres’ Dumbo store, while a few blocks further away, is definitely worth the visit. We’re including it as a bonus stop for those of you that are still standing and not yet chocolate drunk. Jacques Torres IS known as “Mr. Chocolate” and when you step into his shop and take one taste of the hot cocoa, you will know exactly how he got the nickname. They have a variety of chocolates to enjoy, but in the winter, the Wicked Hot Chocolate is super amazing.
We CHALLENGE you to complete the Hub Hot Chocolate Crawl and decide for yourself which hot chocolate is good enough to rule them all. Try it with friends on the weekend and show us how strong your Instagram Game is! Tag us @HubBrooklyn and #HubBkHCC and we will share some of our favorite pics with our friends!
