We loved visiting Cacao, a Portland emporium for all things chocolate, with an emphasis on small-batch, high-quality creations from craft producers who work from bean to bar. The store is, ahem, chock-full of unique chocolates from around the world, but one of our favorite offerings was their drinking chocolate, a thick, rich little mug of molten chocolate that coats your insides with happiness all the way down.
Now Cacao is offering the chance to bring the drinking chocolate experience home with a jar of their Premium Drinking Chocolate Mix, made from a mix of organic Dominican and wild Bolivian dark chocolate, plus a set of four demitasse cups, spoons, and saucers. After using the recipe on the jar for your first round, you can thumb through the copy of Michael Turback's book Hot Chocolate for more recipe ideas (or check Cacao's site). Also included in the drinking chocolate basket is a 500g bar of 72% Ecuadorian dark chocolate for more chocolate beverage inspiration and experimentation.
