The Max Hot Chocolate Melt

The Ultimate hot chocolate experience.
The ultimate hot chocolate experience. A curl of luxury ice cream floating in a Melt. Hot, cold and packed full of delicious, creamy flavour - and almost unlimited combinations.
Hot chocolate and ice cream might not be the most obvious combination, but trust us, it works! We like to use Criterion Ices as like Marimba chocolate, it is top of its class and made in Bury St Edmunds. Adding a curl of ice cream gives you the sensation of drinking something simultaneously hot and cold... As the ice cream settles into the hot chocolate it adds an extra level of creaminess and depth. There are so many combinations but some of our favourite flavours of ice cream to include are: Mint choc chip, brandy & orange, rum & raisin, double chocolate, salted caramel, stem ginger or caramel & hazelnut. Just scoop a nice curl of ice cream and gently float it ontop of you hot chocolate Melt. Goodness me.
We like to make this recipe with our 43% Venezuela milk hot chocolate. Great in our full range of white, milk and dark Hot Chocolate Melts.
A mix of Criollo and Trinitario beans from Venezuela. A richer milk chocolate with the distinctive accent of hazelnut, caramel and vanilla.
This Venezuelan chocolate combines a strong cocoa flavour, the impression of roasted beans and a clear nutty taste. The result is an exclusive milk chocolate; creamy, rich and delicious.
Criollo beans are native to Venezuela and are renowned for producing chocolate with richer more intense flavours. Their reputation dates back to the 17th century when Venezuela was the world’s leading cocoa producer.
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.
