  • Best brand for hot chocolate

    in your opinion, whats the tastiest chocolate youve tried for making hot chocolate at home for guests?

    had a few hot choc fans of late and all I can offer at the moment is cocoa powder mixed in with frothed milk :P

    I would imagine choc flakes would be the best for melting into hot milk.

    I got some Kali from another forum and have since seen it at some gourmet shops.

    Not sure where you are but try David Jones or if you are in Adelaide it is definitely at Lucias in the Central Market.

        nah nah nah

        Best chocolate.... buy far..... Valhrona, Michel Cluizel, Amedei or Cacao Barry.

        Cheaper good chocolate Felchin

        Get the high end chocolate around 64 to 72 percent and add sugar to favour. I just started using the Valhrona chocolate at the cafe and im really really happy. We use to have some single origins from Felchin and thats very good, but dont not compare to Valhrona. Valhrona single origin is one of the best chocolates. Only chocolate i have had better is the Michel Cluizel. Thats a really party in your mouth. Try it in the hot chocolate.

        Powder stuff we use Kali from Somage and African Red from Grounded pleasures.

        Im just chocolate mad at the moment.

                  Does straight cacao (brand forgotten, about $60 / 100g somewhere on Sydneys east side) laced with chilli and whisked heavily into organic full cream milk count? Tasted rather rich, warming and sensual. Lotsa flavour and mouthfeel.

                  Cheers - Cremaholic.

                    I like the Valhrona Ive tasted but it was expensive. Is there anywhere you can get it in Melbourne for a good price?

                    Ive been using lindt at the moment which is nice, or koko deluxe if Im in a hurry.

                    Good chocolate at bean bay prices would be great :-)

                              It looks like they sell both of those chocs
