visitvirginia The Best #HotChocolate in #Virginia: Did you know hot chocolate was thought to remedy coughs and colds in the 1700s? If you’d care to put the #oldschool hot cocoa recipe to the test, step back in time to R. Charlton’s Coffeehouse in #ColonialWilliamsburg. This English coffeehouse, much like those in the 17th century, served as a center for historic news, business and social activity as well as liquid chocolate and coffee delights. #LoveVA #VAfood #chocolatejunkies @colonialwmsburg Follow this story as we uncover Virginia’s best hot chocolate destinations at #LoveVAHotChocolate and check out blog.virginia.org/hotchocolate for more suggestions. 16h

visitvirginia Happy Friday! This is what #Swannanoa looks like after a fresh powdering of #snow. This Italianate mansion was built in 1912 by millionaire philanthropist James Dooley as a summer home gift for his wife. You can tour the grounds on top of #Afton Mountain on select dates to get a glimpse of the mansion in its former glory. Photo props @wmgh2014 #LoveVA #Virginia #SwannanoaPalace 20h

visitvirginia The Best #HotChocolate in #Virginia: In a glistening brasserie in the eclectic heart of Richmond’s Carytown, you may find yourself sipping on a traditionally French, house-made cup of chocolate melted into cream and milk. Top that with a little whipped cream and pair with any in-house, artisanal croissant or Danish and it’s going to be a good day. #LoveVA #CanCanBrasserie #VAfood #chocolatchaud #RVA #chocolatejunkies @cancanbrasserie Follow this story as we uncover Virginia’s best hot chocolate destinations at #LoveVAHotChocolate and check out blog.virginia.org/hotchocolate for more suggestions. 3d

visitvirginia The Best #HotChocolate in #Virginia: #PitangoGelato in Reston offers a hot Italian sipping chocolate inspired by the cafés of Torino, Italy. Intended to be savored in small doses, they serve their cocoa straight up, cut with frothy steamed milk or with fresh whipped cream on the side (so you can decided whether the cream should go on top of the chocolate or the other way around- whoa). You can also buy a bottle to heat up at home. #LoveVA #VAfood #chocolatejunkies @pitangogelato Follow this story as we uncover Virginia’s best hot chocolate destinations at #LoveVAHotChocolate and check out blog.virginia.org/hotchocolate for more suggestions. 4d
