The White Chocolate Lavender.

Their pastries are featured in magazines from Southern Living to Us Weekly, the shop's executive pastry chef, Tariq Hanna, was named one of the top 10 in America, Oprah raves about their macarons... and we can’t help but be addicted to their delicious hot chocolate. Their packaged varieties of drinking chocolates — Extra Dark and Peppermint Stick — rise above the average powdered mix, tasting café-prepared in a matter of minutes by adding hot milk and marshmallows. Our real obsession, though, is their in-shop-only White Chocolate Lavender drink. Made with warm milk, white chocolate, and blue lavender, this therapeutic beverage is sweet but light, making every winter day feel as calm as it should. Try this drink on your own with chef Hanna’s exclusive recipe.

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
