Chicago is undoubtedly experiencing another cold winter at the moment. The minus-degree, freezing temperatures make one long for delectable, hot chocolate drinks that will keep the belly and body, warm and cozy. There are quite a few places in Chicago that do this well. So get your big and comfy coat on, with your plush hat and gloves, and head to any of the following establishments that we, at Ryan Corporate Housing, visit to warm the tummy.
Mindy’s Hot Chocolate Bakery
Address: 1747 N. Damen Chicago, IL 60647
Phone #: 1-773-489-1747
Although known for its chocolate desserts, the doughnuts at Mindy’s are staples. The marshmallows are homemade too, so when placed onto the hot chocolate, you can imagine the gooey, phenomenal texture and flavor. This place also serves brunch, lunch, and dinner too. Above Photo Credit.

Katherine Anne Confections
Phone #: 1-773-245-1630
Katherine Anne Confections’ hand-dipped truffles, soft honey caramels, and pillowy, homemade marshmallows are extremely good, due to the ingredients they use. Their local wildflower honey is used to replace corn syrup with their cream from local Illinois cows. The patrons rave about their rich, thick, chocolaty hot cocoa. Not to be missed.
