The original Cocoa Tree was started in 2003 in Franklin, TN just outside of Nashville and there is a pretty neat story about how it all got started so check out their website if you’re interested. And then after you read the story, go there. Immediately. And get the Passion Hot Chocolate with homemade marshmallows. Okay, you don’t have to get that one, I am certain that everything there tastes uh-mazing, but the chocolate raspberry combination in the Passion was pretty much to die for. In addition to the hot chocolate, the Cocoa Tree serves homemade truffles (my fave was the salted caramel) and other chocolates and that are equally lust-worthy.
So if the winter chill is starting to settle into your bones and you’re in need of a little pick-me-up, The Cocoa Tree is just the place to warm your chocolate-loving soul.
