Eat • Drink – Two Ways to Enjoy!
To enjoy CocoaPlanet as a hot chocolate, just follow these simple steps:
- Pick your milk! Choose milk or a milk substitute – Soy Milk or Coconut Milk work well. For Almond milk, Califia Farms Barrista Blend gives excellent results; other nut milks (e.g. Almond or Hazelnut) can break down when heated. Pour 4-6 ounces of your choice into a cup or mug. Always use milk or milk substitute – never use water!
- Heat the milk by steaming or microwave: Heat the milk, never the chocolate! The target temperature for milk is 130-140º Farenheit. When using a microwave, one minute should be sufficient, plus or minus 15 seconds depending on your microwave’s wattage, the amount of milk being heated, and the size of the cup or mug being used (remember to ensure that your cup or mug is microwave safe!)
- Pick your favorite chocolate flavor! Unwrap one CocoaPlanet chocolate, drop into the cup of heated milk and stir. CocoaPlanet’s round shape and patent-pending Pearls of Flavor™ help the chocolate to break up and dissolve rapidly until…
- Voila! The chocolate melts along with the flavored filling to create a splendid, decadent hot chocolate!
Comme Chocolat à l’Ancienne
In the grand cafés and chocolate houses of Paris, hot chocolate is made the old fashioned way (“à l’ancienne”). High quality tempered chocolate is slowly melted and lovingly folded into hot milk. Creating this rich and decadent treat can take an hour or more! CocoaPlanet chocolates were conceived to let you quickly recreate that indulgence in a few simple steps. Now you can enjoy luxuriant hot chocolate in about a minute - and with a taste that just can’t be found in a powdered instant cocoa.
