A brand with 100-year-old roots, Milkboy Swiss Chocolate is made from the milk of cows grazed in the lush pastures of the Swiss Alps. Grassy Alpine milk gives Milkboy’s collection of chocolate bars made with cocoa from West Africa a particularly buttery fresh taste. For the first time, the company introduced his mix of powders made with award-winning chocolate, Milk Boy Swiss Chocolate His drink. This makes for a particularly creamy, velvety cold drink, or hot cocoa with a sweet, slightly bitter flavor. When the weather is frigid, you might opt for the warmer version. Mix a few heaping tablespoons into milk or milk replacer instead of water. Top it with whipped cream or spike it with bourbon for some real winter warmth ($12.99 a pound). Available at Au Chocolat, 35 High St., Boston, 617-737-1197. Pemberton Farms Marketplace, 2225 Mass. Ave., Cambridge, 617-491-2244. Duck Soup, 365 Boston Post Road, Sudbury, 978-443-3825, or amazon.com.
