Whilst visiting the beautiful but tiny country of Luxembourg I came across a stunning little cafe that I just had to share with you!
I’m the epitome of a chocoholic; If you ask my friends to tell you a trait about myself (apart from awesome, funny etc…) chocoholic would definitely be up there. Therefore as I strolled past a bustling little cafe called the Chocolate House I dragged my boyfriend inside to see what they had to offer. My jaw dropped as I walked inside and saw the hundreds of what they call chocospoons on display; solid blocks of high quality chocolate set on a wooden spoon that you melt in milk to create a beautiful hot chocolate.
The flavours were endless: milk chocolate, cookies and cream, chili and orange, stracciatella, (I could go on and on). The cake display was full of giant, decadent cakes making me feel like I was attending the mad hatters tea party. Unfortunately after eating a ridiculous amount of food at the hotel breakfast buffet, the humongous slices of cake were a bit daunting, but we did try three of the chocospoons.
The flavours we picked were Baileys, Hot Chili and Black and White. You pick your spoon, take a seat and then the waitress brings you a big mug of steaming hot milk, the rest is pretty self explanatory. As the chocolate melts it was quite difficult not to just eat it straight off the spoon, but the wait is definitely worth it! My boyfriend chose the Black and White one which was a bit too sweet for my liking, but the Hot Chili was beautiful; it was smooth, creamy and intensely chocolately and then the heat from the chili came through long after the warm milk was gone. The baileys complimented the milk chocolate resulting in a sweet yet more grown up drink.
If you ever happen to be in Europe and pass through the charming little country of Luxembourg I would highly recommend visiting this chocolate gem. It also gave me an idea for a healthier version which I am going to share with you when I am back from my travels, so watch this space!
