    Hot chocolate, cool cake shakes, and cake balls on a stick are the highlights at this food truck that encourages indulgence in manageable portions. Try a cake shake or Frozen Mexican Hot Chocolate.

    frozen hot chocolates are almost as good as serendipity's in NYC! i'd suggest splitting one in two cups with a friend, it was the perfect amount

    Because regular ol' milkshakes weren't indulgent enough: Holy Cacao offers pick-your-own-flavor milkshakes with bits of cake batter mixed in.
