Chocolate-covered 'Pig Candy' might be the hot ticket item at Rhonda Kave's inventive chocolate shop, but her hot chocolate is an undeniable seasonal must. Built on the backbone of organic Belizean beans harvested in the Moho River Valley, the beverage hits the palate with a mild sweetness, which gives way to deep cocoa notes, slightly fruity from registering at 60 percent cocoa content. The chocolate is melted and whisked into steamed milk, drinkable with an almost syrupy quality. If somehow this potent refreshment isn't luxurious enough for you, try melting a stick of that pig candy into your cup. Mmm...bacon hot chocolate.
