Black Forest Hot Chocolate Melt

Intense dark chocolate and cherry flavours.
A recreation of another dessert classic in a drink with dark chocolate and 1883 Cherry syrup.
At Marimba we love a dessert! Black Forest gâteau or Black Forest cake is a chocolate sponge cake with a rich cherry filling. We can recreated this in a drink with dark chocolate and 1883 Cherry syrup. It can be finished off beautifully with lashings of whipped cream, kirsch sauce drizzle and a galce cherry.
We like to make this recipe with our 71% Ecuador dark hot chocolate. Great in our full range of white, milk and dark Hot Chocolate Melts.
The exceptional fine flavour and rich aroma of Ecuador’s native "Cacao Nacional" is the main characteristic of this dark chocolate.
It is highly prized for its floral flavour. Our high cocoa content delivers a surprisingly gentle flavour distinguished by soft and subtle aromas. There is a floral hint, and a nuance of earthiness provides the finishing touch.
1883 flavour syrups are made in France using natural spring water and flavours. At Marimba we find these make the perfect match for our Hot Chocolate Melts, not least because of the concentrated flavours meaning a smaller portion size for the same depth of flavour.
You never over sweeten your Melt, whilst getting a full and natural flavour.
We recommend just a 16ml portion for a normal 12oz sized mug. If making one of our delicious flavour combinations of two syrups you need just 8ml of each flavour. This ensures you do not over sweeten or overpower the hot chocolate Melt.
