Classic 50% - Moderately Dark Hot Chocolate

Pin It

Our Classic 50% Moderately Dark Hot Chocolate is handmade at York Cocoa Works using Colombian cocoa beans that we roast and use to produce this quite dark, rich hot chocolate in our manufactory.

Our Hot Chocolate is a special recipe with simple ingredients, we take our inspiration from original drinking chocolate recipes, with minimal processing this recipe can be enjoyed with milk, alternative dairy milks, hot water or for a decadent Georgian recipe make with red wine. 

We were originally inspired by this classic recipe first document in 1644, this recipe continued to be made in this way for nearly 250 years until our obsession with eating chocolate removed the cocoa butter for other uses. 

Set a pot of water over a fire until it boils, then to every person that is drinking put an ounce of choc, with as much sugar into another pot; wherin you must put a pint of the said boiling water and theirin mingle the choc and the sugar with the instrument called el molinillo, until it be thoroughly incorporated; which done pour in as many pints of the said water as there be ounces of chocolate…the hotter it is drunk, the better it is, being cold it may do harm.
Antonio Colmenero de Ledesma 1644
