American Heritage Chocolate
Ok, so this isn't really a restuarant review, but I wanted to let you know about some delicious chocolate. American Heritage Chocolate isn't your average chocolate company. Yes, it's a division of MARS, Incorporated, but they make their chocolate based on a colonial recipe with spices (anise, red pepper, nutmeg, orange, and cinnamon).
With the colder weather, I made some hot chocolate, added whipped topping with a chocolate stick, and grated a chocolate block on top. It was so warm and inviting! The special blend of spices made it feel like Christmas. =) This drink is similar to Chuao's Spicy Maya Hot Chocolate, but the spices aren't as overpowering. Even a toddler will enjoy it... As I was getting ready to head to the pumpkin patch, I saw little Robin trying to open my American Heritage Chocolate box. I warned him that if he ate it, then he would not get to pick out a pumpkin. And did he listen? No, he took a big bite out of a chocolate stick. And when he thought I wasn't looking, he took another bite! He thought it was that good.
The American Heritage Chocolate website has several recipes which can be used with their products. I am hoping to use the rest of the chocolate block to make some special cookies for Thanksgiving. I think it might also add a unique flavor to tiramisu. You can probably use it in any chocolate recipe. Their products are available online or in shops on the East Coast. Enjoy a taste and add a flavorful kick to your own recipes.
