It’s a cold day and you are longing for a cup of chocolate? In Venice, there’s no time like Carnival or Christmas to taste hot chocolate. It’s the typical winter drink, and it comes in a lot of varieties. Flavored ones, and very thick. Not too sweet or flavored with almond liquor? We’ll soon prepare a guide on all that 🙂 But first, let’s start with the basic recipe. The one that made Venice famous for her cioccolata densa.
