Description

Mexican Chocolate certified Organic in small Disks for making hot chocolate. No added soy.

A sweet organic chocolate crafted for hot chocolate drinks and specialty baking. Mild cacao with red fruit and vanilla notes are the reasons why Mexican chocolate is so well known among baristas and moms world wide. Sun drenched Tehuantepec cacao touched by the rainforest wind and washed by afternoon showers makes excellent chocolate.

This Sweet Chocolate for baking and drink making is organic certified.

  • Mexican Chocolate disks - small and easy to use.
  • Perfect for making hot chocolate drinks and chocolate frosting.
  • Fruity cacao flavors and vanilla chocolate.
  • CHOCOLATE IS RAW AND ROUGH MESO-AMERICAN STYLE.
  • Use disks as an ingredient - not intended to be eaten plain due to raw sugar sweetness and rawness.

Hand selected rainforest cacao is ground to a fine mixture and blended with top quality cane sugar.  A dosage of vanilla orchid makes magic. The flavor of this chocolate when blended in coffee or with milk will take you on a Southern journey of discovery.  The full bouquet of the cacao releases as it melts in liquids (not tempered for faster melt - whisk in hot milk or blender for best results).

Organic Mexican Cacao: Sweet, Fruity, and Floral. Vanilla chocolate flavors linger. 1" approximate diameter of each chocolate disk.

Organic Mexican Chocolate Ingredients: Cane Sugar, Unsweetened Chocolate, Cocoa Butter, Sunflower Lecithin (emulsifier) and Natural Vanilla.

How to Make the Best Hot Chocolate

Hot chocolate, a sweet heated cocoa beverage created by the Maya more than 2,000 years ago. Normally in The United States people have thought of hot chocolate as being reserved only for cold weather while in other parts of the world all ages enjoy hot chocolate year round all day long. 

In South America hot chocolate is a part of everyday life.  Served in the afternoon with cinnamon spiced long doughnuts called churros, hot chocolate service is much like tea time in Britain.  Fortunately, hot chocolate is gaining popularity here in the USA, and with easy online shopping of high quality cocoa ingredients, hot chocolate consumption has expanded from the winter environment to a year round subtle indulgence that everyone enjoys.

Dr. Antonio Colmenero de Ledesma published the first hot chocolate recipe around the year 1631 in a book called “A Curious Treatise of the Nature and Quality of Chocolate”; the recipe was:

“Take one hundred cocoa beans, two chillies, a handful of anise seed and two pods vanilla (two pulverized Alexandria roses can be substituted), two drams of cinnamon, one dozen almonds and the same amount of hazelnuts, half a pound of white sugar and enough annatto to give some color. And there you have the king of chocolates.”

Below we are going to share with you three amazing and really simple recipes to make the best homemade hot chocolate. Because the chocolate is the main ingredient, we are going to use just organic dark chocolate from Santa Barbara Chocolate.
