Delicious chocolate and gelato what's not to love. A great local business that's a must stop whether you live there or in town for a visit.

I've worked with chocolate, travelled the world tasting chocolate, and consumed many times my body weight in chocolate. But the truffles at Hot Chocolate are hands down the best I've ever eaten. I feel so lucky to have this little local shop in my neighbourhood.

This store is always so clean and well run. The selection of chocolates and baked goods is amazing. I have never been disappointed in any choices I have made. We always have time to stop here when visiting the Comox Valley.

Hot Chocolates has the best gelato, such a treat in the summer months. Their pastries are also quite tasty, and I always longingly gaze at the cakes in the display.
