As the temperatures turn downward, and the holiday season kicks in, it’s all about cozy luxurious dairy-free foods that double as great gifts. Cocoa Canard Spooning Chocolate fits the bill. Each canister contains 64% dark chocolate wafers and a special mini-molinillo (to whisk the chocolate) for a nice authentic touch. They also offer a gift set with the mug pictured below.
Tasting Notes for Cocoa Canard Spooning Chocolate
Once melted and whipped into hot water, Cocoa Canard has a rich, smooth, semi-sweet flavor appealing to most chocoholic taste buds. Although it’s delicious chilled as well, this time of year, piping hot chocolate is my pleasure. Also, I like to add a touch of light coconut milk for more of a full-bodied beverage. Those tiny white specs in my mug of hot chocolate pictured above are from the coconut milk, not the chocolate!

A special luxury
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.
