As some of you may be well into your new year's resolutions, I indulged in my second outing to The Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival at Koko Monk. Located in Kitsilano and known for its handmade and hand painted chocolates, Koko Monk is offering a different gourmet hot chocolate every week during January 17th to February 14th. Check out what I had at the place last week.......During the week of January 24 and 30, Koko Monk was offering a special hot chocolate called the Red Cadillac, inspired by the classic American car. Made with salted almond hot chocolate and sprinkled with pink peppercorn, the drink has the richest flavor. The almond flavor makes this hot chocolate subtly nutty and the peppercorn adds a unique hit of spice.

This hot chocolate is made with black sesame white hot chocolate drizzled with lemon/lime caramel. I for one absolutely love black sesame so this hot chocolate won my heart right from the first sip. The lemon and lime cramel is also delicious as well, I only wish I could have had more.
