In Barcelona, especially in the old city, you can enjoy a dreamy thick rich chocolate caliente. This hot chocolate, Barcelona style is absolutely fantastic. Add some fresh churros and you are in chocolate heaven.
"Good things come in small packages". Couldn't agree more. And in our opinion, this is particularly true when it comes to desserts and sweet stuff.
As we learned at a very young age, when something is good, really good, a small portion is plenty to satisfy a sweet craving.
Take this hot rich drink ("Chocolate Caliente", as we call it in Spain) for instance, a very popular drink people enjoy all year long. It's so rich and intense, a little 4oz mug is really all you need. Not too sweet and packed with antioxidants. Doesn't get any better than that.
Dedicated to all of you, fellow chocolate lovers :). See below for how to make hot chocolate.
Hope you enjoy it!
