'The Dark Side' Hot Chocolate

This raw vegan hot chocolate is simple to make but has a complex taste that's deep and delicious, warming and hearty with a creaminess that's unexpected from vegan chocolate. Make it with or without the plump juicy dates and take a walk on the dark side as you heat things up with this decadent hot chocolate.
