Smores Hot Chocolate at the Blackberry Lounge in Bell Lightbox

I have officially found Heaven in a cup!  Imagine a warm mug of SOMA malted hot chocolate (from SOMA Chocolates in the Distillery?  Have to find me some!), mixed with Baileys and Frangelico, topped with a homemade semi-melted marshmallow and a sprinkling of graham cracker crumbs to complete the smores theme.

This is what I found on the menu of the Blackberry lounge at the Bell Lightbox where we were in search of a quick dessert.  Sipping this delight while enjoying the views of King St. from our window seat was a perfect prelude before heading off to our TIFF movie. 

In terms of the actual desserts, the lemon "tart" with sour cream ice cream and blueberries is a winner.  This was not a pastry tart but more of a lemon custard with creme brulee topping.  However it did have a wonderfully tart yet sweet taste, so maybe it was a play on words.
