Hot Chocolate Mix Trio

Free shipping

Our house made hot chocolate has been a café favorite since our earliest days, when we dreamed of concocting a perfect hot drink to ward off San Francisco’s perpetually foggy chill. This season we’ve created a beautifully boxed trio of flavorful hot chocolate mixes to whisk up at home with fresh milk, cream, or dairy alternative. Three delicious single-origin chocolate mixes, contained in elegant reusable glass vials designed just for us by talented industrial designer (and Dandelion friend) Remy Labesque, are ready to taste, share, gift, and compare.

Our classic House Hot Chocolate is rich, subtly sweet, and deeply chocolatey. A lively blend of spices complements the bright, fruity notes of Ambanja, Madagascar chocolate in our Mission Hot Chocolate. And our unique Hojicha Hot Chocolate, a Dandelion Japan café staple made with delicately roasted Japanese green tea, features subtle smoky notes and a smooth, creamy finish.

This gift set contains three 5.6-ounce bottles of hot chocolate mix, enough to make 12 servings total, with recipe instructions included for each mix.

three mixes to whisk up at home

“Dandelion Chocolate has stood out in the new crop of bean-to-bar chocolate makers in America. And while the chocolate bars are exceptional, equally exciting is the way chocolate is used in their café, deliciously crafted into cakes, brownies, and cookies, as well as blended into one of the best cups of hot chocolate I’ve ever had.”



Three Hot Chocolate Recipes

House Hot Chocolate Mix Vial


The hot chocolate that started it all! Our fudgy 70% Camino Verde, Ecuador ground chocolate makes for creamy, well-rounded drinks that are rich and profoundly chocolatey. (For extra-rich European-style hot chocolate, just use half the milk.)

Mission Hot Chocolate Mix


For a bit of a spicy kick, the Mission hot chocolate mix pays homage to our home in San Francisco’s Mission District.

Hojicha Hot Chocolate Mix


Featuring roasted green tea, the Hojicha hot chocolate mix is a tribute to our home in Tokyo, Japan.
