Leave it to Recchiuti Confections to come up with the most luxurious and silky smooth chocolate drinks we've ever tasted, and to do it in the simplest way. They've managed to formulate a chocolate pistole that melts beautifully when stirred into boiling water - or milk, if you prefer. The result is a gorgeous liquid chocolate with a creamy, foamy head.
You really get a sense of how highly in regard the folks at Recchiuti hold this drink when you read the poem from the back of this canister...
"Oh, delicate Libation!
Oh, stupendous Chocolate creation!
Long life to you, our potentate
Let you not be called Tuscan
But the great Bacchus American
With our senses inspired, we henceforth proclaim
As everyone prays faithfully the same
That chocolate is the king of drinks."
-From Bacchus In America (by Marcelo Malaspina, 1741)
