On a cold day, there’s nothing better than to curl up with a hot mug of drinking chocolate. And now, you can do that with three varieties of decadently thick and rich drinking chocolate from Potomac Chocolate.
The first variety is a single-origin drinking chocolate using cacao from Duarte, DR. It’s thick and rich with a deep traditional dark chocolate flavor and subtle notes of red fruits.
The second variety is my Peppermint Drinking Chocolate. Crushed Doscher’s Old-Fashioned Candy canes are added to Duarte, DR chocolate to make this minty, festive holiday drink.
Gently spiced with cinnamon, sea salt, and aleppo chili pepper, this drinking chocolate is thick, rich, and complex with a touch of heat at the end.
When whisking in the chocolate, the more energetic, the better. The whisking really helps to froth up the drinking chocolate, which produces a luxuriously velvety texture. After whisking, pour into your mug of choice and enjoy. The American-style instructions will make about an 8oz serving–a small mug’s worth. The European instructions will make about an espresso mug’s worth, while the in-between instructions will fill a normal cappuccino-sized mug.
If you’d like a lighter or non-dairy version, simply replace the milk with water. You’ll probably want to reduce the water (or increase the chocolate 🙂 ) a little bit to achieve a similar texture.
All three drinking chocolates are now available in the Shop!
