Valrhona Chocolate

Valrhona has been produced in the Rhone Valley of France since 1922 and creates unique chocolates with complex and balanced flavors. It is the choice of chefs from around the world so we decided to have a Saturday indulgence.

As good as it gets? We like to think so and when you’re through oohing and aahing, chase it down with this Chocolate Orgasm or use it in a cup of REAL Hot Chocolate.

Bon Appetit!

Chocolate Orgasm
1 1/2 oz Absolute Mandrin Vodka 
1 1/2 oz white creme de cacao 

1 shot Kahlua 

1 shot cherry vodka

2 shots chilled espresso 

4 - 6 oz Herhey' chocolate milk 
(or chocolate milk made with Valrhona)


REAL Hot Chocolate

1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 cup heavy cream
5 ounces good-quality chocolate, coarsely chopped (I used 2 ½ of the Valrhona in mine and it was rich enough)

Combine milk and cream in a small saucepan over medium heat and cook until simmering, about 4 minutes.

Add chocolate and whisk until completely melted and well incorporated, about 2 minutes.

Serve immediately.
