This is not a kids drink, it is for enjoying in a expresso size. Very rich, the aroma was terrific, once sachet serves two and you don't use much milk, but I added 2 tablespoons more as it was so rich, and actually spilt it between three in small mugs, we enjoyed it around a log fire and it was the perfect drink :)
Dark chocolate lovers rejoice!
First: this is not for a mug of hot chocolate!! As it states in the info section, this is for a small treat for chocolate lovers.
To turn it into sweeter hot chocolate, follow these instructions:
4 tablespoons chocolate
3/4 tablespoons sugar (I recommend brown sugar)
1 1/4 cup milk (I recommend whole milk)
Warm on the stovetop ON LOW, be sure to not allow it to burn or boil. To add a touch of froth, whisk to your hearts content. Enjoy with your favorite toppings or alone.
I love this brand and would recommend it to anyone who wants some delicious chocolate.
No, Just No
I received this in the Home Sweet Homespun box and like others I was saving it as a treat for a cold night at home. The instructions were ridiculous and no matter how many times I read them they did not make sense. Not sure who makes a cup of hot chocolate out of 4 tbsp of milk. The bag was resealable leading me to believe it was intended for multiple uses but it took the entire bag to make one medium sized mug of hot chocolate. The chocolate didn't mix well and I wondered what on earth was wrong with it. I tasted a piece on its own out of curiosity and it was so bitter and almost salty. Normally I like salty and sweet but this was just bizarre. I had to add some white chocolate chips to the mug just to tolerate the taste. Very disappointing!
Great dessert item.
Delicious and thick. Definitely for the chocolate lover. A little difficult to discern how to make, but after some trial and error, enjoyable.
Perfect in your morning latte!
I add this every morning to my latte. A few chips are the perfect touch of cocoa .
Tried a sample that came in a limited edition box I purchased. Very intense chocolate taste which I didn't mind bcuz I enjoy a not overly sweet dark chocolate flavor. Warms you up on a cold winter's day.
Dark chocolate lovers
This sipping chocolate was rich and bitter, but most unsweetened dark chocolate is. I thought the instructions were unclear and or ridiculous; I couldn't imagine making a cup of hot chocolate with 4 tablespoons of milk...just why? So I took the entire package and melted it in a huge mug filled with 1% milk warmed in the microwave. The morsels do not melt well. I had to heat and stir several times...over 4 minutes in the microwave total. Once it was finally melted, it was too bitter for me to enjoy, so I added a tablespoon of sugar. I enjoyed it with the sugar. Would not buy this full-size product though I like the idea.
Didn't melt well, but tastes good
These definitely didn't melt as instructed. I had to put the morsels in boiling water on the stove and slowly melt them and then add them to warm milk. Also, the direction of 19 g instead of a volume measurement was not very helpful. I ended up just guessing how much to put in since I don't have a kitchen scale. The sipping chocolate did taste good, but i don't know that it was worth all the trouble.
I received this in the Home Sweet Homespun box and I was really looking forward to enjoying it on a cold night, but it was pretty terrible. It didn't melt consistently, it was almost more of a glaze then something you could actually drink, and it was incredibly bitter. There isn't even a little bit of sweetness in it. Definitely not for me.
I liked the flavor of this but the chocolate pieces didn't melt properly so it was hard to drink. Its definitely a dark chocolate taste
