Winter warming spicy hot chocolate range

My Secret Kitchen has launched an innovative range of hot chocolate drinks, and will be available to pubs, hotels and restaurants just in time for the festive trade.

 

The Chocolate Infusion Drink Mixes are available in three flavours: Morning Magic, Midday Melt and Midnight Mystery, each of which consists of curls and flakes of real Belgian chocolate combined with winter spices to add a kick to the traditional hot chocolate.

 

Creamy white chocolate is combined with wasabi, lemongrass and ginger to create a sweet ginger biscuit-like drink in the Morning Magic variety; Midday Melt’s Belgian white chocolate curls is infused with warming star anise, cinnamon and clove; and Midnight Mystery blends orange and juniper with rich dark chocolate for a bittersweet experience.

 

The infusion mixes should be warmed slowly with milk and allowed to steep for at least five minutes before straining into a large mug, although a batch could be made before service and simply reheated using a cappuccino machine to get that frothy effect. Alternatively the mixes can be used to create exciting desserts and ice creams.

 

The Chocolate Infusion Drink Mixes can add variety and individuality to hot drinks menus, making establishments stand out from the rest of the outlets on the high street competing for the Christmas shopper trade.
