How to Make Hot Chocolate Using Tablea

I’m not fond of coffee but I love hot chocolate and this is my usual order if ever we are going to eat breakfast meal in restaurant, resort or hotel. The waitstaff will always asks if I want coffee or tea but my usual reply is, “do you have hot chocolate?”. Fortunately, they always have it and yung iba pa talaga, tablea ang gamit nila. 

I love hot chocolate made of tablea, iba talaga yung lasa niya. It is thick, creamy, and chocolatey. The first time I tried making this was more than a decade ago na, I bought tablea during our Bohol trip but I don’t like the result so I stopped buying tablea kasi hindi ako marunong gumawa. Fast forward to this year, my husband bought tablea, it just happened na nakita niya ito nung bumili siya ng Sagada Coffee so binili na rin niya. 

He searched YouTube for recipes and he tried making this and surprisingly, mas masarap lasa niya compared sa ginawa ko. Then when we went to Landers, he saw this Alfonso’s Classic Hot Chocolate, one pack is PHP99.75 for 10 Cacao Tablets. We love this tablea compared to the previous cacao tablets that we tried because this one is already sweetened. 

One more thing, the packaging includes recipes for hot chocolate, champorado, chocolate Espaňol, instant chocolate, and mocha. So far, he only tried making hot chocolate and he doesn’t use water, pure milk lang kaya and bilis maubos ng milk namin. Good thing I can buy a dozen of Fresh Milk online. Iba pala lasa ng hot chocolate if milk gagamitin, now I know bakit hindi masarap una ko na gawa. Hehehe! 

Hot Chocolate Recipe 

At medium heat, dissolve 2 tablets in 1 cup of water. Stir and simmer until creamy or microwave for 2 minutes. Watch out for boilover. 

Champorado Recipe 

Boil 2 cups of sticky rice in 10 cups of water. Add 10 tablets and 1 cup of brown sugar. Stir constantly until thick and creamy. Add milk (optional). 

Chocolate Espaňol Recipe 

Prepare hot chocolate. Add 1/3 cup of fresh milk or evaporated milk. Add butter (optional). 

Instant Chocolate Recipe 

In a blender, mix 2 tablets, 1/4 cup of milk, and a cup of water. Serve hot, cold, or iced. 

Mocha Recipe 

Add 1/3 teaspoon of coffee to 1 cup of hot chocolate. 

Ever since we tried this tablea, we always buy 3-5 packs of this but because of ECQ, I’m not sure if pwede pa kami dumayo sa Landers. I was searching online and this is the cheapest that I found, I’m still contemplating whether I will buy it or not. Hehehe!

Update December 2022: I found this tablea at Waltermart for PHP118+, mas mura kaysa online.
