Since 1986, JD Rothschild Gourmet Chocolate has warmed bellies with its instant, all-natural hot chocolates. The company's decadent blends greet lips with familiar flavors, such as premium chocolate and hot chocolate with mini marshmallows, plus a few unorthodox ones, such as candy cane, salted caramel, and malted. The blends, which are packaged in decorative, reusable tins, are simple to prepare: customers just need to add hot water and stir, counter-clockwise if they're Australian.
JD Rothschild Gourmet Chocolate's chocolatiers also lead chocolate-making classes, which introduce students to different types of chocolate, including Valrhona and Callebaut. The classes go on to teach participants how to whip up a chocolate mousse, craft fine truffles, and create tasty cocoa rubs.
