Hot Chocolate is just the best thing on a cold and wet morning in Scotland. Thankfully here in Auchterarder it is something that is readily available.
Yesterday I was lucky enough to be able to spend some time at Marie’s Little Cake Shop. A place of wonder for those who enjoy sampling expert baking and light snacks.
Marie’s have recently started offering their morning rolls and lunches to take away. You can have a bacon roll, soup and a selection of sandwiches and of course cake. All at very reasonable prices I may add.
As it was raining and windy, I decided to treat myself to a mug of hot chocolate as I chatted to Marie.
When the hot chocolate arrived, I was delighted to see that it had whipped cream on top and a little bowl of marshmallows with a chocolate flake at the side. Being able to add as many or as little of the marshmallows as I wished was a lovely touch.
A fresh batch of millionaires shortbread had just been put out and as always there were some tasting bits available. Of course, I ended up with a little box of goodies to take away. Who could resist when you have tasted just how good they are?
