The creator of Sioced Fiona Evans got frustrated that there was no decent cup of hot chocolate at home, so she started experimenting with recipes and found the nicest were the ones which were made from real chocolate with very few additives. And so Siocled was born. Siocled is Welsh for Chocolate and is inspired by the stunning Cardigan Bay coastline.
Fiona loves to try out new flavours; her personal favourite is Spiced Hot Chocolate. She even persuaded her hot chocolate hating husband that real hot chocolate was delicious, smooth and chocolatey – and more importantly worth drinking!”
You can purchase our hot chocolate range on Etsy. New unique flavours are added on Etsy also.

Our mixes are mainly made from chocolate so if you put it in the microwave, it will melt! However, it is harder to get it mixed well and may end up less smooth. So whilst it will technically work, the results are inferior to using a saucepan.
Slowly heat up 200ml of milk in a pan, then once the milk is warm add 40g of mix (around 5 heaped teaspoons) to the pan and start stirring. The mix will start to melt into the milk, keep going until it looks smooth and is your desired consistency. If you like it a little thicker, heat it a little longer. Just remember, it will thicken slightly as it cools. If you like it milkier, use more milk - your end result will be a little thinner.
Pour it in your favourite cup or mug, drink it as it is; top with marshmallows; add a squirt of cream; stir in your favourite tipple; even add a scoop of ice cream (yes that is actually a thing!) – finally…Enjoy!
Yes! This happens naturally and is nothing to be concerned about. We recommend not scraping the sides of the pan, and stirring fairly constantly, when you heat your mixture or you are more likely to end up with tiny lumps – completely harmless but not quite as smooth a finish.
