Spending the cool autumn evenings at a concert means BYO-wine, good friends, and bringing chocolate to share.

The weather frosted the peaks of Park City and the Uinta mountains today with a dusting of snow. It’s officially fall.

As cool weather, rain, and longer days sweep over the Park City mountains we’re excited to put on our sweaters, read some good books, and sip warm mochas made with our Mid Mountain Drinking Chocolate.

All good things take their time to grow, including cacao plants.
We took this photo on one of our excursions to visit the cacao growing regions of Costa Rica.

It’s the weekend and we’ve got whiskey on the mind... specifically High West Distillery bourbon. ↟ ↟ ↟

Our Bourbon Barrel Aged Bar uses cacao that’s been aged for 3 months in High West Bourbon barrels, giving this chocolate an oaky, smokey finish. While there are definite whiskey notes to this bar it’s not a whiskey flavored bar—instead the softer flavors produce one of our best and most distinctive bars.

There isn’t always a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Sometimes you get extra lucky and find a chocolate factory.

We love getting mail, even more so when it’s a curated box of chocolates. The Ritual Chocolate Club combines different chocolate bars each month along with a selection from our various chocolate treats (farmhouse chocolate granola, cacao nibs, chocolate almond spread) and merchandise. You’ll get the first of our limited edition bars, merchandise, and an info sheet about each bar. Each month you’ll get a new selection, but always receive $60 worth of product for $50.

Our pictured February box featured chocolate and tea pairings, with samples from @rishitea along with our Limited Edition Earl Grey Tea Bar (no longer available). The current August box features our Farmhouse Granola along with some of our best bars—the Bourbon Barrel Aged, Fleur de Sel, Mid Mountain, and Madagascar.

Mid Mountain blend chocolate—pairs well with the smell of pine cones, summit hikes, and a sunset over alpine lakes.

Our Iron Horse factory/cafe regularly smells like roasting cacao—each of our origins bringing out different flavor notes and subtle differences in color, textures, and smells. We pride ourselves on sustainable, ethical cacao sourcing to bring out the best in our chocolates and the best in our earth.

Our featured chocolate of the month is our Ecuador 75% cacao bar. The Camino Verde origin uses unique fermentation techniques and careful sourcing to create this rich, flavorful bar. Hints of graham cracker, honey, and fudge tasting notes are present in each delicious bite. 20% odd through August—if you’re dying to try this origin now is the time!
Available online or at our Park City locations.

Starting the morning off right with our farmhouse chocolate granola—not too sweet, just the right balance of our Mid Mountain dark chocolate, oats, walnuts, almonds, cacao nibs, and a touch of honey. Inspired by @ritual.anna ‘s time on her family farm in England, this granola is hearty yet delicious. Pairs well with berries, over yogurt, or in the cold months with warm milk.

Delicately roasted cacao beans, perfect on parfaits, ice cream, granola, or any recipe you need to add crunch and chocolate flavor to. Nibs contain powerful antioxidants, magnesium, potassium, iron, and are full of fiber. Available at our Park City locations or online at ritualchocolate.com

On roasting days you can smell the rich chocolately aromas of the cacao throughout our cafe. Our roasting process uses a light roast to retain as much of the inherit flavor from our high quality beans. Roasting evaporates moisture and acid, loosens the shell, and brings out the chocolate quality in the beans.

We’d like to congratulate Ritual’s own @sofithevilla on her recent win at the Argentinian National Championships, defending her title as elite XCO National Champion and making history as the first ever STXC National Champ.
Sofia loves racing in Argentina, because the crowds are loud and people love the sport. “As I was warming up there were people who had been there since 8am cooking traditional Asado to celebrate post race.” Congratulations Sofia, your dedication is truly inspiring. We’re lucky to have you in the Ritual family.

We value the little moments—the wind blowing through the canyon trees, a glimpse of the first mountain blooms of summer, a laugh shared between friends over a perfectly crafted truffle and a foamy latte. Sometimes the little things are all you need.

Last week we were the local featured partner for Montage Deer Valley Summit Yoga Series—a weekly, 60-minute guided meditation and yoga session that runs through August 16. We love being a part of a mountain community, and we’re excited to collaborate with those that embody our focus on wellness and seeking balanced health.

Our MidMountain bars are the perfect reward after any mountain activity, be it yoga, biking, hiking, or rock climbing.

We love watching the chocolate making process, almost as much as we love the chocolate eating process.
Our melanger incorporates sugar and grinds cacao nibs before the mixture goes to our 3-roll mill.
To see our process in action stop by our Factory & Cafe off of Iron Horse Drive.
