Best Hot Cocoa

In a close second for “best hot chocolate” in the Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill area, savor the recession-priced ($2.50) cup of goodness at One Girl Cookies, which has bar tables and features a sweet little seating area overlooking Dean Street. Where Nunu appeals to the sophisticated chocolate-lover with its dark and bitter grownup-ode, One Girl Cookies captures a kid’s ideal.

Sweet and chocolate-y, yet light, One Girl Cookie’s hot cocoa features homemade ganache dropped into freshly foamed milk. Order it topped with a homemade marshmallow: As the marshmallow melts into the light-as-air cocoa, memories of childhood dance around the blue-egg-shell-colored space. It’ll be hard to enjoy this cup without a sample of the shop’s famous cookies, or a show-stopping whoopie pie.
