Christmas may have passed, but there’s still plenty of time to enjoy a warm cup of Delysia Chocolatier hot chocolate. The history of chocolate began with a rich cocoa drink hundreds of years before the first truffle was ever conceived. It was hailed as a nectar of the gods that signified wealth and prestige. The scientific name for the chocolate tree, Theobroma cacao, actually means “food of the gods” in Greek.
Chocolate drinks were also used to relieve a number of ailments, due to invigorating effects and a long list of healthful antioxidants. Once a person had a taste of its’ unforgettable flavor and stimulating health benefits, they always wanted more.
Using the same techniques and fine quality chocolate, Delysia Chocolatier has managed to capture the richness that has been so highly prized for centuries. When it’s cold outside, our Chocolate Mixes are a delicious way to warm up.

If you want to enjoy a bolder dose of minty freshness, try the Peppermint Chocolate Mix. Dark chocolate and Belgium white chocolate are combined with cool peppermint to create this intoxicatingly refreshing hot cocoa.
