I always wondered how does London Fog tastes like with chocolate. In case you didn't know, london fog is steamed milk with vanilla and tea. Kinda like a tea latte. So, adding chocolate will be like a tea mocha? Lol!
The end result isn't what I would expect: warmth, cozy and earthy aromatic. I seriously tot it will be a bad idea. But I guess I was wrong, so wrong. I topped my London Fog Hot Chocolate with some whipped cream and freshly grated dark chocolate. You can of cos use any toppings as desired; marshmallows will be awesome too. Cheers!
