Let’s face it: Christmas is a holiday that’s best paired with one drink, and that drink is hot chocolate. Hot chocolate, of course, is a legendary drink. Mayans drank the rich elixir as earthly as 500 BC, believing it to be a gift from the gods. The drink took a new turn in India when flower was added to it. It then became known as “Bhang” and was drunk to celebrate the Holi festival. Inspired by hot chocolate’s rich history, we created a new hot chocolate tradition for you to celebrate: infused chocolate bombs.

With baking you usually need to pay close attention to recipes. Not to worry, though.

It’s undeniable that potatoes are delicious whether you roast, fry or bake them. When it comes to latkes, nothing compares to its crispy, savory taste! The most important part of the latke-making process comes down to the fat, a combination of the vegetable oil and schmatz, rendered chicken fat that you can pick up at a Jewish deli. Once you’ve got the fat down, the frying part really comes down to rhythm. We infused the vegetable oil to give it that herbaceous taste to complement the necessary applesauce and or sour cream known to add that extra deliciousness to every bite! Pick between sweet or savory and follow LĒVO's infused homemade latke recipe.
