Orange Dark Hot Chocolate

This recipe updates the comforting classic with a hit of sweet, yet tangy citrus, cutting the richness and adding complexity.


Yield: One Serving

4 oz. water

2 oz. Ready-Set-Serve Orange Juice

2 oz. evaporated milk

3 Tbsp. cane sugar

2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

Yield: 3 Gallons

1 1/2 gallons water

3 quarts Ready-Set-Serve Orange Juice

3 quarts evaporated milk

9 C cane sugar

6 C unsweetened cocoa powder


In the microwave or on the stove top, boil Ready-Set-Serve Orange Juice and water. Measure out the evaporated milk, cane sugar, and cocoa powder in a heat proof bowl or mug. When the orange juice and water mixture has come to a boil, pour it into the evaporated milk mixture while continuously whisking to prevent the evaporated milk from curdling. Keep whisking for about one minute until all ingredients are incorporated. Garnish with additional cocoa powder, if desired.
