Also called "Chokola Peyi" meaning "country chocolate", peyi in creole is synonymous with organic, natural, unprocessed locally made. The Haitian chocolate used to make the hot chocolate comes in powder and the hard round shapes pictured. It's made from roasted cocoa beans, that is then grounded into a paste and hardened. Read on for our recipe for drinking hot chocolate.
We had a great opportunity to connect with Chris and send him some treats! This was not a paid or scripted collaboration! So we're incredibly flattered by his great review. We hope you'll find his unboxing video helpful.

With every cake made, someone always without fail suggested I open a bakery, or take cake orders. And I would take an order here and there, but never pursued baking as a profession, and never saw my cakes as a viable business. Not because I didn’t believe in myself or my cakes, but because they were always such a labor of love. If I take the time to bake you a cake, it’s because I love you. You’re special to me so I am offering you something that is special to me. I could never start selling my love. By Father's Day 2019 you will be able to buy our Haitian rhum cake here on our website.
