Hanukkah begins tonight, so today’s gift suggestion is kosher-certified.
For Hannuakh, Christmas or other occasion, gourmet hot chocolate is a delightful gift during the chillier months.
What makes hot chocolate “gourmet?”
Higher quality ingredients, for starters: the cocoa powder or chocolate shavings are better to start with.
Second, gourmet hot chocolate comes in delicious flavors that make the gift extra special. We tried these, from Lake Champlain Chocolates, a fine producer of chocolates and confections:
Aztec Hot Chocolate, spiced with cinnamon, a hint of cayenne and vanilla
Chai & Mighty Hot Chocolate with chai spices
Mocha Hot Chocolate, flavored with coffee and cinnamon
Mountain Mint Hot Chocolate, flavored with sprightly mint
If you don’t want flavors, try:
Traditional Hot Chocolate
Old World Hot Chocolate made of chocolate shavings (also called drinking chocolate)
Old World Drinking Chocolate
Organic Fair Trade Hot Chocolate
Winter Hot Chocolate, the Traditional Hot Chocolate in a festive winter-themed tin
Organic Fair Trade Unsweetened Cocoa, and add a noncaloric sweetener
