A little sweet treat to share with you all…we fell upon this fantastic handmade chocolate shop out of the UK on our last trip to Boston called Hotel Chocolat. Immediately attracted to the signage and storefront itself, complete with old-fashioned bike outside, I couldn’t get in there fast enough to check it out (the smell of cocoa wafting from the doors didn’t hurt either). Complete with a charming “tasting room” this is a must-go when next visiting Beantown (note they also have stores in New York, St. Lucia – uh, yes please! – and all over the UK). Incredible sipping chocolates (a.k.a. hot chocolate) and the most beautiful advent calendars at Christmas. Their treats are like little edible works of art but I have to admit, I loved the store nearly as much. Couldn’t you just EAT those herringbone floors?!
