Indulge at L.A. Burdick Chocolate Company

Nothing screams "quintessential winter activity" more than ice skating outside and then warming up with a hot cup of cocoa. So, this past weekend after a skate around the Frog Pond, I stopped by L.A. Burdick's for the most delicious cup of hot chocolate you could possibly imagine.

Founded in 1987 in New York City, L.A. Burdick Chocolate was inspired by the delicacies that Larry Burdick experienced while traveling in Switzerland. Five years after starting the business, he moved the chocolate shop to New Hampshire where the bonbons quickly gathered a huge following.

In Boston, you'll find locations in Back Bay and in Harvard Square. I highly recommend stopping in to try a cup of hot chocolate (I like the mix of white and dark chocolate shavings steamed into skim milk), or to sample one of their chocolate desserts. 

The chocolate mouse is one of their signature confections. A stray piece of yarn, some extra ganache, and a child's imagination dreamed up this little treat. They're almost too cute to eat!
