The Ticket Kitchen’s chocolate-on-a-stick is the ultimate hot chocolate experience. The anticipation builds as soon as you start swirling a block of rich couverture chocolate into steaming, frothy milk and watch the ingredients become combined into one creamy confection. Fortunately, once you start stirring, sweet satisfaction is mere moments away!
Ticket Kitchen was founded by sisters-in-law AmberLee Fawson, who grew up among the renowned cacao plantations in Venezuela, and Andrea Hancock, a lifelong hot chocolate lover. Together they’ve created hot chocolate that you can make at home and elevated it to a café-quality experience.
Each chocolate Ticket Stick is handmade in their San Francisco chocolate kitchen using top quality Belgian couverture (couverture contains extra cocoa butter, which gives the chocolate more sheen and a rich, creamy flavor). We sampled a range of different Ticket Sticks, including: Salted Caramel, topped with coarse sea salt; French Dark Truffle, which delivers a bold punch of classic cocoa; the deliciously creamy Belgian Milk Chocolate, which finishes with a trace of toffee; Peppermint, which blends Belgian chocolate with an old-fashioned peppermint stick; and, for a little extra heat, the 3-chili Ticket Stick with a blend of chipotle, ancho, and cayenne peppers.
Ticket Kitchen got its name because AmberLee and Andrea want to create chocolate that “sends you,” they explain. Well, we’ve taken their warm, sweet journey and can vouch for the deliciousness of every last sip.
