Hot Chocolate

Uses : Perfect for a serving on its own or during dessert after a meal.


Tips:  If it will be chilled and served at a later time, the beverage should be properly blended before use since there will be some separation.


What is the best cocoa powder? Extra Brute


Why? We strongly recommend choosing a high-fat cacao powder for dairy-based chocolate drinks. The hot cacao beverage becomes extra rich and decadent with the Extra Brute powder (22/24) with rich chocolate and spicy notes that come through in the final flavour.
Scientific recommendations: Heat the initial mixture up to 78°C to avoid evaporating too much water and to heat the beverage up enough to evenly distribute the ingredients.
