Take your hot chocolate game up a notch with this decadent recipe from Honolulu Coffee. Inspired by the Hawaiian Pidgin saying about delicious food (i.e. ‘that food was so good it broke da mouth’), Brok Da Mout’ Hot Chocolate is a blend of dark chocolate, hibiscus ginger tea, ginger with honey, steamed coconut milk and a trace of cardamom.
Try making it yourself, or head to Honolulu Coffee (88 Nelson Street or 2098 West 41st Avenue) during the 10th Annual Hot Chocolate Festival (January 18 – February 14) for a cup prepared by the experts, and enjoy it with a house-made coconut chocolate biscotti.
