The Italians have some of the most decadent ways with hot chocolate. They also love to combine orange flavor with any type of chocolate, a delicious match. The city of Florence and the Umbria region have some of the most delicious hot chocolate in the world. Don't be fooled by the institutional- looking machines that dispense it.
