Take home the secret weapon Hotel Chocolat uses to make their hot chocolates taste so good
If you love hot chocolate, you might need this nifty gadget in your life
If the cold weather has got you down, a hot chocolate is the perfect remedy to the winter blues. And the Hotel Chocolat Velvetiser makes one of the best hot chocolates you will ever taste in a cafe or at home.
Chocolate-masters Hotel Chocolat has teamed up with kitchen-appliance heavyweights Dualit to create the Velvetiser, a gadget that can make the indulgent drink in under 2.5 minutes. And yes, it tastes just as good as the one they serve in their world-renowned cafes. I’ve tried!
For today only you can snap up the Velvetiser and a whole bundle of hotel chocolate goodies, for less than the Velvetiser itself.
The Hotel Chocolate Velvetiser bundle comes complete with 10 mixed hot chocolate sachets and 10 latte sachets, with two special Hotel Chocolate pod mugs to drink it from. The entire bundle is available for £84.99 instead of £105 for today only. To put that into perspective the Velvetiser alone will set you back £99.95 on the Hotel Chocolate website.
Forget the powdery stuff you can buy from your local supermarket. The Velvetiser will heat the milk to 67-69°C (the exact temperature at which cocoa solids melt), its built-in whisk will fold everything together and minutes later you’ll be sipping a barista-quality drink. No more dusty powder from here on!
Hotel Chocolat grades of chocolate always have cocoa has the first ingredient, not sugar, like most store-bought versions.
This could make a great Christmas present for the hot chocolate-loving person in your life, or simply as a luxurious treat for you. Go on – treat yourself!
The Velvetiser comes in a choice of three stylish colours, and includes a selection box of indulgent chocolate.
My personal favourite is the Matt Charcoal, but it also comes in a stylish Copper and White. The selection box includes two single-serves of each recipe so you can find your favourites. Salted Caramel, anyone?
