These 3 Hot Chocolates are my absolute 3 best hot chocolates in the whole of Lake Taupō.

The Vine Eatery & Bar

I felt that The Vine was very relaxing, and there were wine glasses everywhere! On the tables, behind the counter, even on the lights! I like places where the seats are; they are all in little nooks and crannies! Whilst guzzling up this delicious hot chocolate I felt happy, all though, it is my second hot chocolate!!

Saoirse - What ingredients do you use?

For our hot chocolates we use Cadbury hot chocolate powder and high quality dark chocolate for the ganache.

Micheal -

DiXie Browns

It is very comfortable at Dixie Browns and there is some pretty art on the walls. The hot chocolate is luxurious, and the home-made marshmallows are like fluffy pillows (but don't taste like that!). I felt happy, fabtastic👍when I was indulging this hot chocolate.

Saoirse - What ingredients do you use in your hot chocolates?

Nicole - We use very expensive top quality chocolate and very yummy home made marshmallows.

Saoirse - How do you make your hot chocolates?

Nicole -

  • High quality chocolate is melted down and tempered into moulds with a wooden spoon in the chocolate to create a chocolate thingymajigee that will go in the hot milk

  • We then put the hot chocolate spoon into hot milk and the customers melt the chocolate and mix it around

  • The home made marshmallows are delish

I like sitting next to the fire and looking out at Lake Taupō through the big windows.
