Chocolate Beverages a Delicious Necessity in Bellingham

I admit it. I’m a chocoholic. So today, when I was thinking about where to grab a cup of coffee in Bellingham, Chocolate Necessities popped into my mind. They have a fairly new location at 1425 Cornwall Avenue that I love to visit for gelato with the kids, and to pick up truffles for my husband and I to share. I decided to swing by to see what kinds of warm beverages they serve.

What I found was heaven in a cup! My choices ranged from Italian sipping chocolate, which the barista described as “a liquid truffle,” (I tasted it, and she was not joking. It is thick and warm and delectable!) to “Drinking Chocolate.” After one taste, I can honestly say, forget hot chocolate, go straight to “drinking chocolate”! This is warm milk combined with either: white chocolate, dark hazelnut chocolate, Belgian milk chocolate, Venuatin 44% dark milk chocolate, Belgian 60% bittersweet chocolate, Colombian 65% bittersweet chocolate, or Peruvian 70% bittersweet chocolate.

I think I mentioned I’m a chocoholic, so I ordered a mug of the 70% Peruvian. WOW. It was pure, warm chocolate bliss, and I highly recommend it. Next time a friend suggests we meet for coffee, I plan to suggest we meet for chocolate!

Of course, on my way out I also had to purchase another bag of my favorite 64% bittersweet chocolate chips from Guayaquil, Ecuador to enjoy at home.
