The finest chocolate you can drink

The finest chocolate you can drink

Last updated

Life, we believe, is too short to eat bad chocolate. And if it’s true for eating chocolate, shouldn’t it be true of drinking it as well?

The Essential Ingredient Drinking Chocolate elevates hot chocolate to a truly transcendent experience, and turns chocolate milkshakes into a special indulgence.

This blend of ethically sourced 45% West African chocolate and Australian cane sugar is vegan friendly, free from additives, dairy, gluten or any artificial fillers, and has a rich but balanced flavour profile - sweet with subtle maple and vanilla notes.

Mix with your favourite milk and serve either hot, cold or blended with a scoop of ice cream for a tremendous thick shake. It’s also delicious stirred into your protein smoothie in the morning, or used to make a chocolate cocktail.

Classic Hot Chocolate
Heat 50ml of any kind of milk in a saucepan, bringing to a simmer. Whisk in 2-3 tablespoons of drinking chocolate (depending how chocolatey you prefer), mixing until dissolved. Add another 150ml of milk, stirring and gently heating until hot. Pour into a mug and top with a marshmallow or whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Heat 200ml of milk in a saucepan, or in the microwave, until hot but not boiling. In a mug combine 2 tablespoons of drinking chocolate with one shot of freshly brewed espresso (or 1 tsp of instant coffee and a splash of hot water), mixing until chocolate is dissolved. Slowly pour the hot milk into the mug while stirring. Sprinkle a little extra drinking chocolate on top to garnish.

Boozy Peppermint Hot Chocolate
Serve this in place of dessert on a cold evening! Make a batch of Classic Hot Chocolate in a saucepan and keep warm while you build the cocktail. In a warmed latte or Irish coffee glass (rinse with hot water) combine 30ml crème de cacao, 8ml crème de menthe and 30ml peppermint schnapps. Top with Classic Hot Chocolate (about 90ml) and stir with a long bar spoon. Enjoy slowly!
