I have recently discovered a new hot chocolate mix that I am recommending to people. It is unusual and socially correct as well: Green & Black’s Organic Hot Chocolate Drink with a Twist of Orange and a Blend of Spices. (I got it at Zagara’s market in Cleveland Heights.) It is USDA Certified Organic, and is “fair trade.” It’s made with not just cocoa powder, but also with orange, cinnamon, nutmeg and black pepper, so it has a less-sweet, quite unusual taste. Mixed with skim milk (which is all I use) and heated in the microwave, it’s fine. I’m sure it would be even better with 2% or whole milk that has been heated gently and then stirred into the chocolate. I’m not that patient, however.
