- Ruby chocolate
- Ruby chocolate is a variety of chocolate introduced in 2017 by Barry Callebaut, a Belgian–Swiss cocoa company.The chocolate is characterized by a taste that has been described as slightly sweet and sour, which is comparable to that of berries, as the chocolate's main characteristic is its acidity.
- instant dark roast coffee
- It must be instant, and must be dark roast. The darker the better. The confectionery coating adds a lot of sweetness to it and the dark roast balances it out. I use NesCafe and you can find it here on Amazon.
- Dark Chocolate
- This helps balance out the sweetness of the ruby chocolate and milk.
