Dolce: Apotheker’s Hot Chocolate

apothekers-main

This Valentine’s Day, we are marking the occasion by celebrating chocolate. Not just any chocolate though, hot chocolate made with the best new chocolate bar on the streets of Boston – Apotheker’s! Apotheker’s takes rich raw cacao and sweetens it with honey, making their handcrafted chocolate not only delicious, but healthy for you too. This bee-sweetened chocolate will make you swoon. Even The Boston Globe is showing their love for Apotheker’s Chocolate! We love you, too!

I’ve been experimenting with using Apotheker’s Chocolate for a non-dairy hot chocolate for the last several weeks. Here is the recipe, just in time for making a luxurious, sweet treat for loved ones this Valentine’s Day. Cozy on up and enjoy! –jacque

Ingredients

2 cups almond milk, unsweetened

1 large Medjool date, pitted and soaked

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 ounces chocolate {I used Apotheker’s plain}

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly ground

Directions
{Makes 4 servings}

1. Soak the date in water for at least an hour.

2. Mix the date and almond milk in a blender or food processor.

3. In a small saucepan, warm the milk/date mixture over medium heat. Add in the vanilla extract and stir.

4. Cut the chocolate into smaller pieces and add to the milk mixture. Keep the pot over medium heat and stir consistently so that the melting chocolate is well incorporated.

5. Pour into small serving mugs and top with a little freshly ground nutmeg. You will feel the love!

    Can you believe that I’ve never actually had a cup of hot chocolate?! I just had my first mocha a couple of months ago and I love those for an occasional treat. I am definitely saving this to give a proper hot chocolate a try. And, this chocolate in particular looks lovely!
