Where to Buy:  The Ticket Kitchen on Foodzie

Product Description:

Bold but not afraid to be sweet, our signature French Dark chocolate is just aggressive enough. Swirl a block of our signature French Dark chocolate into 6-8 ounces of steaming milk, and you’ll have a cup of hot chocolate worth lingering over. We can’t help feel that the stirring adds to the experience, soothing you over while building up anticipation for that first sip. The hot chocolate that results is the same caliber you will find in the world’s finest cafes and bakeries. Trust us, we know our hot chocolate.

Every hot chocolate Ticket Stick is handmade in our San Francisco chocolate kitchen of fine French couverture.

What I Think:

I don’t really drink a lot of hot chocolate, mostly because I’ve usually a cup of tea in hand.  But, I must say that I absolutely love the concept of hot chocolate on a stick.  No need for a spoon, just heat the milk and stir your way to a decadent mug of chocolate-y goodness.  And the best part, licking the stick after most of the chocolate is melted away – YUM!

And this Hot Chocolate on a Stick is totally yum!  Certainly not your ordinary hot chocolate!  It is quite possibly the best hot chocolate I’ve ever tasted.

The chocolate block is pretty large.  I used just six ounces of hot milk to make my hot chocolate, but, I think it would have worked well with eight or even ten ounces of hot milk as well.  With the six ounces, it made for a very rich, dark chocolate experience.  The flavor is sweet with a faint note of bitterness, and so very pleasantly chocolate-y.  Chocolate enough to satisfy even this chocoholic!

And what is especially cool about this hot chocolate on a stick is that you can add a little chocolate to whatever you’re drinking – how about a chocolate chai latte?  Or you can turn your morning cup of coffee into mocha!  Delicious!

The Ticket Kitchen offers many different options with this unique and delicious hot chocolate – you can purchase as few as two hot chocolate cubes on a stick for $7.00 or 36 for $120.00.  A little pricey for a cup of hot chocolate.  But then again, this isn’t your average cup of hot chocolate!  This one is for serious chocolate drinkers!

And for those who like their hot chocolate on the spicy side, they now offer Three-Chili Hot Chocolate on a Stick, featuring a blend of chipotle, ancho and cayenne chili peppers.

My Final Thoughts:

This Hot Chocolate on a Stick takes hot chocolate to a whole other level.  So good, it doesn’t even need a marshmallow!
