Winter does not seem to want to let up this year. The bone-chilling cold makes me want to hybernate and eat comfort food. One thing that makes me feel warm inside is a nice hot chocolate treat. I could go all summer without so much as a single chocolate chip but as soon as the temperatures drop below the 30s I seek it out on a daily basis. Thankfully there are several places around DC that can cater to that craving and warm you up from the inside out.
