Super-Rich Hot Chocolate with Coconut Cream

Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson created this ultra-rich hot chocolate topped with coconut cream for his partner Bobby Stuckey's wife, Danette, who has a sweet tooth. "At Frasca, we make a lot of desserts with chocolate or coconut, so we just kept going and came up with this drink," says Lachlan.
