It's freakin' cold outside, New Yorkers. It's literally I-can't-feel-my-face-freezing-my-ass-off cold outside. 

That means it's the perfect temperature to get you jazzed up for this gourmet hot chocolate festival happening from January 23rd-31st in Brooklyn

The Valrhona Hot Chocolate Festival is the perfect opportunity for you to warm up from the cold while tasting exclusive hot chocolates as well as raise money for City Harvest. 

If you've never heard of Valrhona before, you'll be in for a treat. It's one of the most delicious brands of chocolates used by pastry chefs around the world. 


Some of the participating bakeries and beverage professionals are Ladurée, La Maison du Chocolat, Francois Payard Patisserie, Dominique Ansel Bakery, Brooklyn Roasting Company, Baked, Doughnut Plant, Dough, and Provence en Boite. 

If you can't wait until January 23rd to get your hot chocolate fix (because it's seriously cold out right now), try one of these incredible spots.
