|Chocoholic's delight from a treasured Toronto friend.|
I just got hooked on a different hot chocolate. Or shall I say drinking chocolate or chocolatyl? It's definitely a rapturous, more grown up version of he popular winter aphrodisiac beverage. The notes are exquisite, flavorful, rich.
Chocosol Traders based in Toronto, Canada have a line of rich, impressive sweets that are ethically packaged, Mexican derived (Oaxaca to be exact), fair trade, and vegan. They are set in the divine practice of stone grounding high quality cacao beans by using methods that date back to ancient time.
Here Chocosol states grand foundation:
"Our artisanal chocolate is a symbol that embodies our values of socially just, ecological chocolate made, not only, with a ‘cradle to cradle’ approach, but also, charged with the use of solar energy..."
The decadent taste alone is highly superb. This has to be one of the yummiest hot chocolaty concoctions there is! My favorite way of making traditional hot chocolate is simmering almond milk and melt in vegan chocolate chips or parts of a whole flavored bar. Chocosol calls for different set of directions.
|This is not hot cocoa. Not the hot cocoa from olden days. This is something superior, something above satisfactory.|
|Looks like a candy bar, but in a hot mug tastes like a sensually fogged dream.|
|For great variations add cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, cayenne, or even some melted vegan marshmallows. Right now, I prefer plain hot chocolat. Tastes perfect.|
