Winter Warmers - Specialty Market Hot Chocolate

Warm Up with a Specialty Hot Chocolate from Prahran Market

Nothing says winter quite like a piping hot mug of pure indulgence – especially when chocolate is involved. And when you’re at Prahran Market, you can bet your bottom dollar it’s always going to be a premium hot chocolate! So when you’re looking for a bit of a pick-me-up or an excuse to rest the legs after a big day of Market shopping, we’ve done you a favour and rounded up the best hot chocolates we have. Now all you need to do is add a yummy snack to go with it. Will that be one marshmallow or two?

Couverture Hot Chocolate – Cioccolato Lombardo
No stranger to chocolate, our very own chocolatier Tad Lombardo needs no introduction. In fact, his signature hot chocolate speaks for itself. Featuring 65% single origin couverture chocolate from Maracaibo Venezuela (voted best in the world by the Italian Pastry Academy), its decadent velvety texture is a culmination of rich coffee and plum aromas that work together to enhance the natural cacao flavour. Grab yourself one already made in store or pick up a take home pack to recreate at home.

Creamy Hot Chocolate – Mama Marija’s
For a full bodied chocolate flavour, Mama Marija’s combines its delicious Belgian chocolate with your choice of milk while they froth it. Not only is this a failsafe way to make sure you get only the most decadent sip every time, but the creamy taste lends itself perfectly to a mid morning snack. Chocolate brownie anyone?

Belgian Hot Chocolate – Abla’s Patisserie
Known for their amazing baklawa and their modern take on the mille-feuille, the duo behind Abla’s Patisserie prove they can do a lot more than pastries. With a decadent blend of rich, smooth Belgian hot chocolate available in milk and dark blends, this little delight is going to take your morning tea repertoire from good to great in just one sip!

Environmentally Friendly Hot Chocolate – Jasper Coffee
Jasper Coffee might be known for their coffee, but their hot chocolate certainly holds its own. Certified Fairtrade and organic, this little cup of heaven is thick, indulgent and delicious. Made with organic milk and swerved up in a bio-degradable, compostable take away cup – it’s basically guilt-free! And if you love it, pick up a take-home canister to make it at home whenever you like!

Organic Hot Chocolate – Fritz Gelato
Not just your point of call for gelato; in winter, you can grab a mouth watering hot chocolate too! Fritz Gelato’s hot chocolate is made with organic milk mixed with organic Dutch cocoa from Amsterdam and topped with marshmallows for an extra kick. For double the indulgence, add an organic doughnut too!

Mörk Drinking Chocolate – The Essential Ingredient (DIY)
Don’t have time to stop for a sit down hot chocolate? Get yourself to The Essential Ingredient where you’ll find a stack of Mörk drinking chocolates available for the picking. Mörk (meaning ‘dark’ in Swedish) is all about promoting a strong, dense chocolate flavour in a range of intensity levels. From Junior Dark (50%) to Even Darker (85%) and everything in between, you’ll find the perfect blend to suit your palate.
