Taste Test: American Heritage Chocolate

Hot Chocolate

Add 2 Tablespoons of mix to water and whisk

The finished cup!

American Heritage Chocolate is made by the Mars Corporation using the recipe and ingredients that are authentic to the 17th Century. This was given to me as a gift from a friend that visited Colonial Williamsburg and I have seen it at several other historical sights.

The package contains chocolate, sugar, cocoa butter and spices. A serving is easily made, by boiling 4 ounces of water and adding 2 tablespoons of the mix. You whisk until the chocolate is melted and pour in cup to serve.

This hot chocolate is surprisingly rich considering it is made with water and has a delicious blend of spices, which add to the flavor and do not overpower it. I would recommend this if you like hot chocolate or even if you just wanted to see what a chocolate drink in the 17th century tasted like!
