The best hot chocolate for the winter season...
If you’re looking for a hot chocolate with a difference, stop by Proven Goods, in the quirky hub of Byker’s Hoults Yard where they serve up freshly baked doughnuts, and a pretty good hot chocolate too. Forget whipped cream, here their Hot Chocolate Fluff is served with nothing other than a gigantic toasted dollop of home made marshmallow fluff and chocolate shavings.

This quirky, urban cafe has two outposts in Leed’s City Centre. While they may be experts in creating the perfect coffee, their hot chocolates are definitely worth the trip. You won’t find them topped with lashings of whipped cream and marshmallows, instead simple, silky and smooth – the Italian way.

This cosy, industrial-style deli cafe home bakes the most glorious of cakes, and of course the richest of hot chocolates. But, if you’re looking for an afternoon pick me up then we’d recommend their Lumumba – aged rum with 58 percent hot chocolate, it’s sure to warm you right up.
