Newsflash: ‘Loaded’ hot chocolate is now a major trend and it’s going to make your mouth water!

Stop the press - you need to see the crazily decadent hot chocolate trend that’s currently taking the Internet by storm! Guaranteed to give you major food envy, the 'loaded hot chocolate' consists of a regular hot chocolate piled high with a towering stack of sweet chocolatey treats. 

These amazing hot chocolate towers are winter versions of the 'freakshake' trend that landed last summer. The freakshakes were originally conceived by Australian Canberra cafe Pâtissez and featured various milkshake flavours covered in everything from doughnuts to ice cream and biscuits. They have since crossed continents to be replicated by cafes such as Molly Bakes in London and The Great British Cupcakery in Newcastle.

Now, Cafe Passion Tree in Australia has taken the trend one step further by making the jump from cold to hot drinks and come up with the ‘loaded hot chocolate’. In a post to their Instagram account on Thursday, the cafe said they had released a Caramel Teaser, Campfire Smores, Rose Delight and Peanut Butter Cuppa hot chocolate range and boy, do they look amazing! Think decadent hot chocolates covered in everything from brownies and malteasers to oreos and marshmallows, and soaked in nutella, peanut butter, carmel and more. Take a look for yourself at the mouthwatering creations below.
