What's new at Chocolate Hollow?
We've rebranded our line of chocolates to, well, what it is - Schmilk Chocolate. We have ideas of making other cashew-based goods under subsidiary brands to-come! Furthermore, as of 2020, we're pursuing expanding our online channel, making unique and select dairy free milk chocolates only available here on our website! Keep your eyes peeled for many more irresistible vegan milk chocolates!
How do we make dairy-free chocolate?
Milk chocolate is typically made with the inclusion of dairy milk powder. This is what makes it creamy. The problem is, then, to find something to take over the role of the milk powder. With so many ingredients out there it's unsurprising that there is a solution. And while there are competitors that make dairy-free chocolate, no one has managed to make a true milk-tasting chocolate - but we have. Our winning Schmilk® recipe uses a combination of delicious and wholesome ingredients, and, of course, toasted cashews.
A lot of experimenting has gone into both the improved Schmilk® recipe and the process by which the recipe is created. Our creativity, experience, and devotion is what gives our milk free milk chocolate its milk-esque taste.
How does Schmilk® chocolate compare to traditional milk chocolate?
There is quite a bit of taste variation within the milk chocolate category. For example, Cadbury’s milk chocolate is easily distinguishable from Godiva and they’re both easily distinguishable from Lindt.
Schmilk® doesn’t taste just like any of these familiar milk chocolates. It differs subtly from each distinct milk chocolate, just as different dairy milk chocolates differ from each other. It is high quality, made with pure Puruvian cocoa butter - no foreign fats are added.
We are a "nut" facility!We rely on the lovely cashew nut to create arguably the most creamy-and-smooth experience in our milk chocolate alternatives. Some of our Schmilk selections have peanut, almond, and hazelnut inclusions.
Shelf-Life?Our chocolate has a shelf life of 12 months.
Is Chocolate Hollow's dairy-free chocolate "healthy"?
We believe that chocolate can absolutely be part of a healthy diet. That being said, our chocolate is not "diet chocolate." We develop our recipes with one goal in mind: to create the best possible dairy-free milk-chocolate eating experience. No Dairy. All Decadence.
How is the chocolate shipped?
We currently ship via USPS. We use ice packs during the summer, free of charge. For orders over $50, Domestic (US) shipping is on us.
What is CBD? CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is one of many cannabinoids produced by hemp plants. Unlike THC, the primary psychoactive element in cannabis, CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning that while it does work on the mind, it doesn’t cause the “high” associated with cannabis use. You must be 18 years or older to purchase our CBD products.
What kind of CBD is used in CBD Schmilk products? We use CBD isolate, which is a crystalline powder of pure CBD, so you can experience the potential feel-good effects of CBD without experiencing the intoxicating effects of THC.
Does this mean there's ZERO traces of THC in CBD? According to federal law established following the passage of the 2014 Farm Bill, hemp plants and hemp-derived products (e.g., CBD) are legally permitted to contain 0.3% THC or less. While we do source our CBD from a reliable and trustworthy source that has Certificates of Analysis which accurately reports the purity of the sourced CBD, the small chance still exists that it can contain more than 0.4%. So, please, consume at your own risk.
