Before I started this hot cocoa series I went shopping at several grocery stores looking for all the different chocolates and flavorings I could get my hands on. One item I found was Dagoba Organic Chocolate. Star Wars chocolate?! Yes please! (I’m not a nerd. I just have several in my life whom I love.) Just pretend there is an “h” on the end.

I bought this chocolate just because of the name, but I noticed it was organic and fair trade certified. I began researching the company and liked what I found. I am not affiliated with (or compensated by) this company in any way, but I believe in giving credit where credit is due. I rarely discuss brands here, but when I find a company I can stand behind and support I like to share. So go to their website to learn more about them.

In Star Wars, Dagobah is where Luke Skywalker goes to be trained by Yoda. I think Chai Spiced Hot Cocoa was probably a regular beverage in Jedi training. I mean, chocolate makes me stronger and chai spices definitely help improve my force skills.

Chocolate, spices, Yoda-approved. What’s not to love?

For those that celebrate Christmas today (like my dad’s side of the family). Merry Christmas! Have a wonderful day with your loved ones, and enjoy some Jedi Hot Cocoa together. 🙂

    I haven't made any of these hot chocolate recipes because I'm lazy and I don't really like chocolate, but I've read them all! So merry christmas to me! And I love the photos on this one, too. Especially the first one and the last one. And the third one. And the second one. Anyway, keep up the good work. Can't wait to see what's next.

    Also, you told Sean on twitter that he should watch Dr. Who. You're definitely a nerd.
