I know it sounds crazy to drink hot chocolate when the temperature is still regularly above 90 degrees. But on a recent trip to Houston, I couldnâ€™t resist the chocolate confectionâ€”with chocolate made in-house from cocoa beans imported from Oaxacaâ€” at Hugoâ€™s, which serves its frothy cup with fresh, hot Mexican churros. Look for our story on Hugoâ€™s and its terrific hot chocolate in the Drink section of the December issue. Until then, do you know of any other spots in Texas that serve amazing hot chocolate?
