Boxed Chocolates

Dark Hot Chocolate Pistoles

Our Dark Chocolate Pistoles are made with a blend of cacao from South America. They melt into rich, smooth chocolate perfect for creating chocolate sauce or as an indulgent hot chocolate.

Instructions for Making Hot Chocolate 
Our recommended ratio is 2 parts boiling water to 1 part dark hot chocolate pistoles.
To make 2 espresso size portions, we suggest 1 cup of boiling water + 1/2 cup pistoles.
Directions: mix boiling hot water with pistoles and blend with an immersion blender (faster) or whisk by hand (takes time) in a stainless pitcher.
We recommend using water instead of dairy as the pistoles are already very rich. Milk can be substituted for water for those who prefer an even richer experience.

This is the best dark chocolate ever. Good for making hot chocolate and also for grabbing a snack.

Dark Hot Chocolate Pistoles

Purchased at the Ferry Building, the new packaging/branding is lovely, and the pistoles are, as usual, delicious. I toss a small handful into a cup of hot milk, and don’t prepare it as you recommend, but it makes me happy. I drive in from Sacramento to purchase, because I’ve tried our local chocolatiers chocolate and it isn’t nearly as yummy as yours. The lovely women who rang me up were friendly and pleasant.

Our Flavors

We source local California farmers’ markets for bundles of fresh herbs like lavender and lemon verbena to create our signature infusions.
