Whole milk, 64% Caribbean or extra bitter chocolate, nothing more! The milk is boiled, and the chocolate delicately blended into the milk. The Master Chocolatier constantly whips the mixture to obtain an exquisite, smooth and light drink. If you prefer to enjoy it without milk, hot chocolate can be prepared simply with water and chocolate. No other ingredients need be added. Your taste buds will delight in the powerful flavor of chocolate.
