March and April weather is always volatile in Zürich. You think spring is in the air, and the next day it will be hailing and temperature will drop to 1 degrees celsius!

A cold and wet day like today, there’s nothing better than a cup of homemade hot chocolate, made with high quality Swiss dark chocolate. Here’s an easy and fast recipe for a confectionery-style rich hot chocolate that will surprise your family and friends.

Recipe for two servings
