Oaxacan Chocolate


  • Four Oaxacan-inspired stone-ground chocolate discs by Taza Chocolate
  • One of each flavor: Guajillo Chili, Cacao Puro, Cinnamon, and Vanilla
  • Each disc is 1.35 ounces
  • Ingredients: Organic cacao beans, organic cane sugar, organic vanilla bean, organic cinnamon, organic chili powder. Contains traces of almonds, hazelnuts and coconut. May contain traces of other tree nuts and sesame seeds.

Minimally processed and ground on hand-carved granite millstones, these Mexican-style dark chocolate discs are for eating—or drinking as hot chocolate. To make, in a saucepan, heat one cup of the milk of your choice or even plain old water until it’s just barely simmering. Add a finely chopped or grated chocolate disc, stirring until it dissolves completely. On lowest heat, use a molinillo or whisk to get the hot chocolate fluffy and frothy. All it needs is a pinch of salt.
