This is more of a special luxury than an everyday indulgence, but it's definitely a wonderful sipping experience to snuggle up with. The 64% dark, dairy-free, soy-free cacao pastilles create a rich, perfectly sweet mug of true, melted hot chocolate (I liked it best with just a touch of light coconut cream added for body). As an added bonus, each canister includes a mini-molinillo for traditional-style preparation, and for gift-giving, Cocoa Canard also has a nice package with a spoon-adorned mug.

Imagine fine dark chocolate wafers tempered to melt with ease into a rich mug of true hot chocolate. Enter Cocoa Canard Spooning Chocolate.

Cocoa Canard Spooning Chocolate - Gourmet Dairy-Free Hot Chocolate

As the temperatures turn downward, and the holiday season kicks in, I thought it would be fun to feature some luxurious dairy-free foods that offer warmth and double as great gifts. Cocoa Canard Spooning Chocolate fits that bill. Each generously sized canister contains 64% dark chocolate wafers and a special mini-molinillo (to properly whisk the chocolate) for a nice authentic touch. They also offer a gift set with the mug pictured below.

Once melted and whipped into hot water, Cocoa Canard Spooning Chocolate has a rich, smooth, semi-sweet flavor that would be appealing to most chocoholic taste buds. It can be enjoyed chilled, too, but this time of year, piping hot chocolate is my pleasure. I also liked adding a couple tablespoons of pure light coconut milk (it did separate just a touch – note that the tiny white specs in my mug are from the coconut milk, not the chocolate!) for more of a full-bodied beverage.
