First cultivated in Mesoamerica by the Olmec, hot chocolate, or chocoltl as they called it, was soon shared with the Mayans and eventually with the Aztecs as well. Because of its energy boosting properties and positive nutritional attributes, hot chocolate was initially revered as a drink reserved for important figures during sacred ceremonies. Luckily for all of us, hot chocolate eventually shed its luxe label and is now widely enjoyed across the globe. Everyone, from kids after a snowball fight to those looking for a sweet coffeehouse alternative to espresso, indulges in the rich, soothing drink. Here at Delysia, we have some delectable artisan hot chocolate to celebrate the winter season. Read on and discover all the unique hot chocolate blends we offer, all made from award-winning, fair-trade chocolate.
Traditional Hot Chocolate
For the traditionalists among us, we have our dark chocolate blend. Our purest hot chocolate will strike nostalgic chords with everyone through this rich and creamy blend. Bonus: if you’ve got little ones that you simply can’t pry away form the snow, whip some of this up as an afternoon treat and they’ll be booking it indoors in no time.
Infused Hot Chocolate
Our infused blends are aromatic and flavorful spins on traditional hot chocolate. Featuring soothing green tea, calming peppermint, and refreshing Texas lavender options, you’ll be coming back for more before you know it.
