Nothing gets you into the festive spirit quite like a true winter warmer. Picture the scene: it’s freezing cold outside and you’ve had a stressful day of battling the crowds while Christmas shopping – what’s better than locking your door, putting your feet up and unwinding with a deliciously relaxing, spiced hot chocolate? For a cup of chocolate heaven, simply whisk the chocolate powder with hot milk or a dairy-free alternative, pour into your favourite mug and enjoy!
The cocoa beans which have gone into making this devilishly tasty hot chocolate have been skilfully harvested from Kuapa Kokoo, a fair trade co-operative of loud-and-proud smallholder farmers in Ghana. The cocoa is grown in the shade of the Ghanaian tropical rainforest, and slowly fermented and dried in the sun by the farmers, who take great pride in the chocolate company they co-own.
