So wanting to try the hot chilli chocolate drink, I love Chilli Chocolate, and usually try and get my friend from Queenstown to ship me some from the Patagonia shop there which I turn into the most amazing drinks, so glad I could finally hopefully get a decent hot chilli chocolate drink to consume, as Im still yet to find a decent cafe in Auckland who produces a better hot chocolate than me...

...I had to laugh about how she made her hot chocolates because...I use to do that when I was at Uni...everyone else would have coffee which I couldn't stand so I use to melt things down to have a hot chocolate....lol...then I went to Spain for 2 weeks and notice the total different of my useless attempt of making hot chocolate after I tried hot chocolate and churros....was wonderful....I also like how she got into starting up her business...have always wanted to take that step but have to many things going at once with work....but I know I want to do something sooner rather than later....

Oh well dreams are free I suppose.
