Cold Weather Brings Hot Chocolate to Firecakes


If you’ve never had a Firecakes donut, you don’t know what you’re missing. They are like a gift from above, the freshness and quality of the donuts are apparent before you even take a bite. The donuts are so much like a gift that they even tie the box with string so it feels like you’re opening a gift. Now that the temperatures are falling, Firecakes in River North (68 West Hubbard) is serving up the perfect complement to their handheld masterpieces, frothed to order Hot Chocolate. ‪Chef Jonathan Fox’s made to order, Parisian-style hot chocolate ($4 per cup) balances Belgian bittersweet chocolate with organic milk, a touch of vanilla and cane sugar. This delicious, decadent drink is topped with a housemade, Tahitian vanilla bean marshmallow. It will be available throughout the entire Fall/Winter season and will match up with any of the amazing hand-crafted, small batch donuts available at Firecakes (and listed below). Get in there and try one of these great treats, while sipping on a cup of the new hot chocolate.
