Valor Chocolate is a classic company dating back to the 19th Century. Their recipe for Chocolate a la Taza has been enjoyed throughout Spain since before you were born!

Rich milk chocolate is made extra thick with a pinch of rice flour. Add it to simmering milk to make a wonderfully smooth and creamy! You tailor the thickness of this extraordinary chocolate to your taste by deciding how much to add to the milk. Stir for a couple of minutes and you are ready to go.

In Spain they dip fresh churro pastries into a cup of this extraordinarily thick hot chocolate. (We have a churro making kit for you if you are feeling ambitious! But doughnuts and similar pastries are fine.)

This powdered form is ready in minutes.


Sugar, fat reduced cocoa powder (19%), wheat flour, emulsifying agent (lecithin), aroma.

    "We've treasured the Valor chocolate for years. But ordered 10 packages to share with friends at a pre-Christmas churro get together. They all loved it and were impressed with how thick and rich it was(is). Thanks for carrying it"

    "Oh my God, this drink is heaven, as soon as I received my shipment of churros, I made this drink, as I was dipping my churro in the chocolate, it took me back to when I will a little girl in Spain. Thank you La Tienda, you are the real thing when it comes to products and food from Spain."
