Coming from the Spanish word “tablea” meaning tablet, chocolate tablea is a 100% pure chocolate packed in tablet form. It is made up of dried cocoa beans roasted and grinded until it makes a thick paste. Alternatively spelled as “tableya”, these chocolate disks make the traditional Filipino hot chocolate drink and other Filipino chocolate food items.
How To Use Tablea
To make traditional Filipino hot chocolate, start with 2-3 disks in a small saucepan. Add and boil about 1 cup (250ml) of water to melt and dissolve the tablea. Once dissolved, lower the heat and add hot milk, sugar, or even a pinch of salt, according to taste. For a frothy cup of hot chocolate, you can also use the traditional wooden “batirol,” or simply whisk briskly with a wooden spoon.
Our chocolate tablea can also be melted and used for champorado (chocolate rice porridge), brownies, cupcakes, cookies and other chocolate delicacies, giving it the traditional and earthy chocolate taste.
