With every change of season comes change of Saturday afternoon drink-based activities. In summer it’s a refreshing spritz by the sea, autumn you’re after a restorative coffee, spring it’s a nutritious juice – but winter… winter’s for hot chocolate.
Here’s some of the best places to get some in Malta:
1. Molly’s Cafe
A social media favourite – this cute cafe in Mosta serves a delicious hot chocolate and will even dress it up for the occasion!
Pair with: Their gorgeous Christmas pancakes – Mince Pie or Ferrero Rocher flavour. Wow.
2. Costa Coffee
If you’re on the run and you need a convenient hot chocolate fix, Costa Coffee does not disappoint.
Pair with: A yummy salted caramel muffin.
3. Posh Turkish
Do you just really feel like a thick one? Yup, we can relate. The new upmarket version of your late-night Turkish food-binge will sort you right out. Head down to Pama, people!
Pair with: Some home-made baklava!
Tiny marshmallows in hot chocolate just make you feel like a kid again. And hey, with that sugar-overload you’ll be whizzing through your Christmas shopping like it’s nobody’s business.
Pair with: Any of the desserts of the day – they all look to die for (we’re loving this gorgeous praline cake the best though…)
These guys take their hot chocolate seriously – they’ve got orange and cinnamon, pistachio, white nocciola, chilli pepper, and coconut flavour amongst others.
Pair with: Their super-cute macarons. Yes please.
These guys mix it up by adding a dash of coffee to your steaming mug of amazing. Why the hell not?
Pair with: Go crazy. Get a doughnut.
Their hot chocolate is made with Nutella. There’s literally nothing more to add.
Pair with: Triple chocolate or peanut butter and jelly cupcakes. Or even a slice of guten-free red velvet cake. #SomethingForEveryone
