In a world that's positively pumpkin-obsessed during the fall months, it can be easy to overlook the classic hot chocolate. Unassuming, old-school, but always delicious — it's the underdog of the seasonal hot drink menu. Since, we find few things more comforting than curling up with a delicious cup of cocoa, we took it upon ourselves to find the absolute best variations in town.
