Rich and ultra creamy, drinkable chocolate is a delicately sweetened hot chocolate that is richer and with a higher chocolate content than many hot chocolate recipes. It’s the perfect way to enjoy high quality chocolate. It’s a simple method, and it allows the pure flavor of superior chocolate to shine. I’m a fan! It’s the type of drink you get a some of the nicest chocolate stores around here, but it’s so easy to make at home (and cheaper too!).
Today, I am sharing this recipe along with a giveaway that includes several fair trade chocolates (along with a wealth of other fair trade goodies). This giveaway is going to not only help you make delicious food this holiday season, but it’s also going to show you the beauty of fair trade products. Included in this baking box giveaway is Guittard semisweet baking chocolate, which is a very high quality and lovely chocolate to work with. (And, it uses sunflower lecithin which is a great boon to those sensitive to soy!), and this is what I used to make my drinkable chocolate recipe. Soooo delicious!
I know that many of us are busy making lovely food gifts to share with others, and Christmas is the beautiful time to give to others. Well, one important way that we can do that is making sure that our ingredients came from those receiving fair wages. Unfortunately, some of our common baking products can come cheaply to us because a low-income, third world farmer received unlivable wages.
But we can change that by buying products that are fair trade, whether it’s tea, chocolate, vanilla extract, coffee, or quinoa.
And if you are going to the bother to buy really high quality ingredients, let them shine through in your recipes! Don’t cover them up with unnecessary refined sugars and ingredients!
Before I share my recipe, here is a brief description of the amazing items one lucky winner will get in our giveaway sent to me by the sponsor of this giveaway, Fair Trade USA. (Let me tell you, we have been enjoying eating our way through our sample box sent! What a fun way to celebrate good food! And of course, Joel and I never pass down the opportunity to drink good coffee and tea too. ). Where applicable, I’ve provided a link to these items to where they can be found at our affiliate, Amazon as well.
