Hot Cocoa & Hot Chocolate

Hot cocoa is made from raw cocoa powder, that is actually pressed chocolate. Pressing the chocolate removes the fat of the cocoa butter. Hot chocolate is made from chocolate bars melted into a cream or even ground into a powder. And of course chocolate bars have a high level of sugar and fat and much lower levels of actual cocoa powder.

Did you know?

Hot cocoa goes back thousands of years. In fact some of the earlier versions had wine and chilies in it!
