Theo Chocolate is the only roaster of organic cocoa beans and the first to roast Fair Trade Certified cocoa beans in the United States. Founder, Joe Whinney, converted the former Red Hook Brewery in Fremont into his dream chocolate factory, where beans are not only roasted, but transformed into intensely flavored chocolate bars and confections. Whinney is so dedicated to the topic of chocolate that he hired a biologist to map the genetics of the beans he uses. Theo chocolates have wowed chefs and national media, garnering mentions in O Magazine as well as Food & Wine Magazine. Tours of the factory are available. Learn more at theochocolate.com.

The chocolate french toast may well be the best dessert I’ve ever had!

Comment by George Ghali

I had the hot chocolate when I celebrated my birthday with friends. We ordered two desserts to share among the three of us – the hot chocolate was so good that my friend ordered another, and announced to the waiter that it was not to be shared.

I live in Ellensburg, so can’t make a regular trip to Tilth – any chance you would share your recipe for the hot chocolate?

Here is recipe for the hot chocolate:

1 ½ cups whole milk
2 cardamom pods, roughly chopped
3 ounces Theo dark chocolate
Pinch of salt
1 ounce Woodford Reserve bourbon

Simmer milk and cardamom over medium-low heat for about 20 minutes. Remove cardamom. Whisk in the chocolate an ounce at a time. If the chocolate flavor isn’t intense enough, add more chocolate pieces to taste. Add a pinch of salt to heighten the flavor. Add the bourbon to a mug and top with the hot chocolate. Serve with marshmallows on top.
