Sizzling chocolate from Waialua, Blue Hawaii Life-style, Ala Moana Middle, and downtown Honolulu
John HeckathornDerek Lanter from Waialua Chocolate gives the local hot chocolate from Blue Hawaii Lifestyle its secret twist
It’s bitterly cold out there – at least by Honolulu standards. Night lows in the 60s? Break off the boots and mittens. At least close the bedroom windows.
There is no better antidote to the cold of winter than something hot, rich, and sweet with one kick. And to top it off, you want the joy of eating locally.
The hot chocolate at Blue Hawaii Lifestyle is now made with Waialua chocolate grown on the rich soil and in the abundant sunshine of Oahu’s north coast.
Blue Hawaii doesn’t add a little chocolate flavor to it. It chops a 30 gram Waialua candy bar and whisked in hot milk. Plus, there’s just a tiny pinch of paprika, which makes everything come alive.
Paprika? It’s the Aztecs who drank theirs, and they invented hot chocolate.
It’s the perfect $ 6 recipe for winter. Available in both downtown and the Ala Moana Center.
