Much Better Than Slim-Fast

A weight-loss tip: If you want to consume a liquid that will make you absolutely full for the entire rest of the day so that you can't even bear the thought of eating anything else, look no further than the hot chocolate with a homemade marshmallow from City Bakery. Now with a new West Coast (Santa Monica) location! We missed this, as we did the Fondue Festival at Artisanal, but keep your eyes open next winter for their hot chocolate festival.

It was like pudding. Warm, unctuous pudding with a little fluffy melting cloud of whipped sugar in the middle. We think that the ingredients list must have read "Chocolate, Heavy Cream, Cocoa Butter, Butter, Sugar." It was too much for me to finish. Can you believe it?

I will try this place, I will! It just happens to be on the other side of the universe from me -- over in richy-rich hollywood-types-with-families-land -- but I will try it.

Their website is a little obtuse.

so my pal Megan is obsessed with this hot chocolate you have tipped her off too... (Check out her post.) I might just have to find a way to send some to her now. Any ideas?

Oh, this stuff is not sendable; there is no mix. They make it from scratch in front of you from melted Scharffen-Berger chocolate that spins around in this mill-like contraption in the center island of the store. But there is one in Santa Monica! Where is your friend?

Ahhh City Bakery is indeed delicious. Before they became super hip and moved uptown 2 blocks, I worked next door to the 17th Street location -- all of the staff birthdays were celebrated with City Bakery cakes. mmmm...
