X-Dark is a little different from the others. We use 70% dark chocolate and chocoalte liquor in this blend. The sugar amount is the same as the others, but its not near as sweet because of the darker chocolate that is used. X-Dark Hot Choca is prefered by many people that don't like things too much on the sweet side. It has a drier mouthfeel as there isn't as much cocoa butter in the darker chocolates. It finishes dark without any lingering sweetness. These same people still add marshmallows though...... just say'n.
Don't forget the Marshmallows!

What is Hot Choca?
Hot Choca is a proprietary recipe, powdered mix we make in house that you can use at home to make delicious hot chocolate!
Why call it Hot Choca? Because its part Hot Chocolate, part Hot Cocoa! Hot Chocolate is made from bar chocolate, Hot Cocoa is made from cocoa powder. Each is delicious in its own right, but combining both gives you the entire flavor profile of chocolate in one steamy cup! Pure Belgian chocolate is blended right into the mix along with Belgian Cocoa. Its great made with hot water and even better with hot milk, or make it truly sinful with heavy cream! You can also play around with adjusting the amount of mix you use. Since we use cornstarch as a non-caking agent, you can heat it on the stove and it will thicken a little bit more because of the starch. We use an emersion blender in house for making the best frothy hot chocolate around! Now you can too!
I've had reports of people eating the powder by the spoonful, sprinkling it on ice cream, stirring into hot coffee, used to make ice cream, frosting and cake fillings! Awesome ideas! Well, not sure about eating it by the spoonful....
