“It’s called, ‘A Night in the Black Forest’. It’s got cherry bourbon, several types of chocolate–dark, milk, cocoa…

We mix it all up with cream, milk, a secret blend of spices that we mix in a stewpot and let it simmer all along. We serve it with some whip cream and a chocolate covered cherry. It’s the best.” Maureen, Owner, Pie Cloud 10th Street NW.

YYC Hot Chocolate Festival is on right now, with 9 of the 32 participating restaurants located in Hillhurst-Sunnyside. All month these businesses compete for popular votes as to who has the best hot chocolate. Proceeds going to Meals on Wheels.
