Hot chocolate combines two of my favorite things: hot drinks and chocolate. In fall and winter, I sometimes find myself enjoying the French custom of sipping a small cup of chocolat chaud (hot chocolate) along with my petit déjeuner (breakfast) or my family's tradition of sharing homemade hot chocolate around a fire. And, although a rich hot chocolate is practically a food on its own, I find that pairing hot chocolate with other foods can be just as enjoyable as pairing solid chocolate with various drinks.
For tips on how to do this at home, check out my guide to hot chocolate pairings. Have a delicious hot chocolate pairing of your own? Share it with other readers int he comments below!
