"Mindy takes bacon to a whole new level in these cookies; they're truly 'da bomb.' They're made with bacon grease, so the bacon flavor is literally everywhere. Bacon and chocolate together is an amazing combination."

"If you want a caffeine and sugar rush in one glass, go see Mindy at Hot Chocolate. Half espresso, half chocolate. It really is decadence in a glass."

"Wait until Chicago's winter chill really hits, then warm your soul with Mindy Segal’s rich cocoa and perfectly crisp cookies to match."
Chef Edward Kim reviews Buttermilk pancake at Mindy's Hot Chocolate

"It's got a crispy golden crust on the outside, and it's fluffy and moist on the inside with a round buttermilk flavor. These are the pancakes that you wish you could make—or even better, what you dreamed your parents would make for you before they forced you to rake the leaves outside. They're what those packaged mixes promise you on their outside glamour shots (but always fail to deliver). A great reminder why pancakes are a standard in the daily breakfast repertoire."
