No one knows indulgences like Finale. This Boston-based desserterie and bakery embraces the full experience of hot chocolate by experimenting with the best, classic flavors to bring customers the ultimate tastes of hot chocolate. Whether you try their hazelnut, white, or dark hot chocolate, you’ll instantly love their interpretations of age-old hot chocolate recipes. But our favorite? Their saucy Chocolate Lush, which makes hot chocolate seem a bit more grown-up. Combining milk, hot chocolate, Baileys, butterscotch schnapps, and Valrhona chocolate, this drink gives cocoa unexpected maturity. With this beverage, hot chocolate is no longer restricted to a quiet night in.
Bring heavy cream, milk, and orange zest to a boil. Remove from heat, add chocolate, and stir until completely melted. Strain through a mesh strainer to remove zest.
