WWFD? at City Bakery

Hot chocolate, City Bakery

In 1992, City Bakery hosted its first Hot Chocolate Festival. How do they keep things, um, fresh year after year? By creating unique flavors like today's What Would Faulkner Do?, whiskey and lemon mixed with pure chocolate, then heated until the alcohol burns off and everything else melts into gooey goodness, with just the slightest hint of bitterness. We're not sure what Faulkner would do exactly, except probably add in a shot or six of something, but we plopped a thick homemade marshmallow into a mug and sipped the afternoon away.
