Best hot chocolate spots in the Waikato

Keep warm and drink hot chocolate, happiness is hot chocolate, cuddle in a cup, hot chocolate is like a hug from the inside…Whatever your favourite hot chocolate saying is, the Waikato region is fully loaded with places to get a delicious – and just a little bit decadent – hot chocolate.

Your hot chocolate of choice might come with whipped cream, miniature or plump full-size marshmallows, a swirl of chocolate syrup, or a sprinkle of cinnamon, coconut flakes, or – wait for it – even some more chocolate grated on top.
