Cold Snap prompts Hot Chocolate desire

The most desirable Hot Chocolate drinks!

Amedei, drinking chocolate

There’s nothing quite like an unexpected cold snap in the weather to have you reaching for your favourite Hot Chocolate drink, and as you would expect, Chocolate Trading Co has a wide selection of different milk chocolate and dark chocolate, hot drinking chocolates from some of the world’s most respected chocolatiers, for you to choose from.

We’ve pooled all of our hot chocolates together on one easy reference page for you to compare and buy online - Click here.

Selected with the purity and quality of ingredients in mind, the selection of drinking chocolates on offer varies in cocoa origin, cocoa percentage and weight. Some are even organic & Fairtrade drinking chocolates.

We currently have 14 different hot chocolates & 100% cocoa powders to choose from; Chocolatiers include Amedei, Akesson’s, Bonnat, Callebaut, Charbonnel et Walker, Chocolate Tree, Valrhona and not forgetting our own Superior Selection drinking chocolate flakes.

For those who prefer to ‘make their own’ hot chocolate drinks, then here are some alternatives.

Using Callebaut’s chocolate shavings (available in white, milk and dark chocolate), crushing a small portion of these larger flakes before blending in with your hot liquid of choice produces a very satisfying hot chocolate drink.

We’d recommend starting with a heaped tablespoon per mug and adjusting to suit your own individual taste.

An alternative to using chocolate shavings is to use chocolate chips (callets / couvertures). With a wider variety of cocoa origins and cocoa strengths to choose from, this allows you to make a very individual hot chocolate drink indeed.

Because chocolate chips are more solid and therefore harder to blend directly with your preferred hot liquid, we’d recommend pre-softening a portion either in the mug using a microwave (be careful not to over-cook and burn the chocolate and make sure your cup/mug/jug etc is microwave safe) or for larger quantities, perhaps use a bain-marie or a microwave and microwave safe bowl.

Then simply whisk/blend in with hot milk etc. to make a tasty hot chocolate, whenever you fancy.

If you’re using chips, we’d recommend starting with a 35g portion per cup/mug and adjusting to suit individual taste preferences.

Add a luxurious touch by adding chocolate cigarellos as a stirrer.
