The perfect hot chocolate
What could be better after a day of skiing, snowshoeing, or hiking than a comforting cup of hot chocolate? Especially when it features a splash of top-quality Choco Crème! Made with real cocoa and no artificial flavours, this decadent chocolate cream turns all your creations into rich and gourmet masterpieces. For an even more magical cup of cocoa, top with a dollop of flavoured whipped cream (think maple, amaretto, vanilla, or orange zest). A true delight!
90 ml (3 oz.) Choco Crème
15 ml (1 tbsp.) unsweetened cocoa powder
250 ml (1 cup) 2% milk
Mini marshmallows or whipped cream for garnish
In a small pot, heat the milk and cocoa powder over low heat, without bringing to a boil. Pour the Choco Crème into a mug, then add the milk mixture. Top with marshmallows or whipped cream.
In the mood for a simple, yet succulent dessert? Add Choco Crème to your sweet treat recipes to give them an original and delicious touch. You can also drizzle it over vanilla ice cream, chocolate mousse, brownies, or truffles.
This creamy version of Miele amaretto is truly one of a kind. The popular Italian liqueur has been reinvented, featuring organic Quebec honey and a touch of dairy cream. Delicious and comforting! The pear, almond, ginger, and grilled sesame notes pair perfectly with exotic cocktails, such as the Aperi-Tiki-Colada. One sip and you’ll be whisked away to a tropical paradise!
30 ml (1 oz.) Miele Crème
30 ml (1 oz.) Amermelade
30 ml (1 oz.) rum
