Mission Hot Chocolate Mix

Dandelion Chocolate

For years we’ve pondered how to describe the lively flavors of our Mission Hot Chocolate. On café menus, we often go with “foamy, spiced, and spicy” — which sounds funny, but is true! To make this hot chocolate mix, we blend our bright, fruity 70% Ambanja, Madagascar chocolate with comforting cinnamon and allspice (“spiced”) and with pinches of cayenne pepper and pasilla chile, for a subtly “spicy” kick.

A few years ago, Remy Labesque, a very talented industrial designer, attended our Introduction to Chocolate class and asked if there were opportunities to collaborate together. Over many months, he developed the concept for these corked bottles and oversaw their production in Japan. We love how they look in our kitchen, and hope you will find this bottle to be a functional, beautiful object with many future uses.

Whether you prefer dairy milk or an alternative, hot chocolate or cold, our Mission Hot Chocolate mix whisks up rich, creamy drinks with zip — perfect for dunking your favorite crispy cookies. Add coffee or espresso for a spiced mocha, or blend with ice for a refreshing treat. We always recommend adding marshmallows.

Each bottle makes four servings.

Our Chocolate Philosophy

Bean to Bar in San Francisco

We’re Dandelion Chocolate, a bean-to-bar chocolate maker in San Francisco’s Mission District. For over 10 years, we’ve been turning cocoa beans and organic sugar into pure dark chocolate. We travel and build lasting relationships with cocoa farmers and producers, then craft small batches of chocolate back home in our factory. With our minimal approach, we aim to highlight different beans’ distinctive flavor notes—from classic fudge to tangy fruit.


Beans and sugar.
That's all.

Our chocolate bars are just two ingredients: cocoa beans and organic sugar. We never add cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla, flavorings, or preservatives because those ingredients mask the inherent flavors in beans.


Good cocoa starts
with good relationships.

Good relationships are absolutely essential to procuring consistently good flavor. We work closely with the producers who grow, ferment, and dry the single-origin cocoa beans we source, so we can share this amazing cocoa.

We hope someday you'll join us at our San Francisco factory for a toasty s'more while watching chocolate makers craft beans into chocolate. In the meanwhile, we'll ship bars and truffles to your doorstep, host you for a virtual chocolate class, or answer (chocolate!) questions you might have via phone or email.
