07 Dec How can you go from simply hot to haute?
With French chocolate, of course! Warm cocoa, move over. Use our Callebaut chocolate and local Eberhard’s organic milk and heavy cream for a fabulous drink to share beside a fire with friends and family. Add some schnapps and let the warm memory-making begin! Check out our easy, gift-ready haute chocolate candy recipe, and how to make all kinds of adorable marshmallow shapes — a sweet way to get kids involved in the fun.
Makes 12 servings
12 oz Callebaut Dark Chocolate discs (found in the baking section)
1 cup heavy cream (we love Eberhard’s)
1/4 tsp salt
Cocoa powder for dusting
In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients. Melt in the microwave on the lowest setting, 20-30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, just until melted. Cool for 10 minutes, cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. Scoop into 1” balls, roll in cocoa and wrap each in plastic wrap, so they don’t stick together. Then place in a zip lock bag and store chilled in the refrigerator.
Now use to make cocoa: Add two balls in a mug of milk and microwave until piping hot. Stir until smooth. Add whipped topping, dust with cocoa or top with marshmallows. Makes 12 servings.
