YHO is on a hunt for its favorite cup of hot chocolate. We’re gonna search high and we’re gonna search low. And our tongues might get burned on multiple occasions, but we’re happy to take those hits in the blessed name of chocolate.
Stop No. 1: Elizabeth’s Bakery & Tea Shop
Location: 575 S. 700 East, Salt Lake City
Elizabeth’s seems like a good place to start, simply because we wonder if anyone is going to be able to beat it. A classic labeled mug of Cadbury hot chocolate is served with homemade whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles on top, as well as a petite Swiss Delice square. Note the heart-shaped tray.
Unlike a lot of fancy hot chocolates, this one isn’t bitter, nor is it overly sweet like the packaged varieties. As far as thickness goes, it’s on the light side but the cup is large enough to make it last a while. What we like best is the flavor: like a melted, high-quality milk chocolate bar that goes down easy. This one is good.
