gourmet hot chocolate on a stick / to die for

have you heard of the ticket kitchen and their gourmet hot chocolate? my husband and i signed up to be taste testers in their beginning stages and were instant huge fans. (which means a whole lot coming from hot cocoa snobs like us.) the wondrous thing about their unique treat is the hot chocolate comes (adorably packaged) in the form of a whopping chunk of rich chocolate–on a clever stick, mind you–ready to dunk into steaming hot milk, then stirred into cocoa oblivion. oh my goodness, it's divine. dark and dreamy and full flavored. exactly what you'd hope for in a cup of hot cocoa. (i'm thinking it's perfect for a sweetheart this valentine's day.)



i'm not just saying all this because i am fond of AmberLee (the charming gal with the apron on, inside the ticket kitchen) and her popular blog, giverslog.com. nor am i saying it because i love her macaroons, which she kindly sent me one day out of the blue. i am delighted for her success, hardwork and the outcome of their incredible product, one they can be proud of. heaven knows all the hours spent brainstorming, branding, taste-testing, creating, photographing, packaging, advertising and selling. congrats to the ticket chocolate team on your delicious new creation! hooray, hooray for booming businesses and for watching cubes of chocolate melt into milk. it's my new favorite hobby.

p.s. i think hot chocolate on a stick is about to become the hot new thing for party favors. literally.






the designer packaging and lovely photo styling is oh so chic.
oh yeah, they're on the facebook too.

This sounds absolutely delicious! I love the idea of just popping a stick of chocolate into some piping hot milk to create a quick decadent and divine hot cocoa! Thanks for sharing the message about The Ticket Kitchen!

Does anything sound better than a cocoa oblivion? Nice word choices, Mart.

p.s. Ever thought of making a stamp out of your handwriting? I've seen lots on Etsy lately, but I'd prefer your penmanship.

I can't wait to try this, and I have to say that with the simple brilliance of this concept (dunking and drinking melted chocolate) it's no wonder that her business is booming. Genius! Good for her!

Oh man-that looks delicious! I think food on a stick always tastes better-I think the corn dog convinced me of that.
