Hot Chocolate On A Stick, from Boon Chocolates, Darlinghurst

July 27th, 2009  |  Published in Uncategorized  |  4 Comments


Sure, it’s hibernation weather right now, but it’s worth bracing snap-freeze temperatures to secure a take-home hot chocolate pack from Boon, Darlinghurst.

For $8.50, you get a little bag with two ‘hot chocolate popsicles’. Melt the choc in half a cup of milk and add the remaining half-cup when the choc starts slinking off the paddle pop stick and swirling through everything.

I like to add cardamom to the mix, just to give the drink some minty bite.

Although it’s not as lovely and decadent as lounging in the Boon upstairs salon and having the hot chocolate served on a platter (with a mini-mousse and praline for $7.50), it’s definitely a winter-redeeming nightcap.

    Yes, great idea, Ebony! I like your style of thinking. And maybe we could have a Japanese dinner at Zushi beforehand? Sweet!

  4. Chocolate on a stick? Why didn’t I think of that! Simply yet I’ll bet delicious.

Hi, I'm Lee Tran Lam. When not blogging with my mouth full, I'm usually writing, presenting Local Fidelity on FBi radio, making zines, producing podcasts or continually breaking promises about how I really am gonna get through my book pile one day.

All the good pictures on this blog are by photography ace (and patient boyfriend), Will Reichelt, (all the dodgy ones can be credited to me)!

The lovely banner is by friend and ultra-talented illustrator Grace Lee.

This site redesign was made possible by the next-level generosity and expertise of Daniel Boud, whose code-tinkering ways are only outranked by his seriously inspired way with a camera.

This is a blog about eating and drinking in Sydney, Australia (with the odd cross-border or off-topic detour). BYO appetite.
