Hot chocolate maker on Hotel Chocolat: Unwrapped

The hot chocolate maker – which is technically called a velvetiser – is introduced as a new piece of equipment, and staff are trained on how to use and demonstrate it. It features a removable whisk that froths up your drink!

But the developer behind the machine, Hotel Chocolat executive chef David Demaison, is the person giving the instructions where the demo hot chocolate maker has arrived.

So, to make the hot chocolate, you pour milk in, then the chocolate sachet, and press the on button!

Buy the Hotel Chocolat hot chocolate maker

The at-home chocolate system can bought on the Hotel Chocolat website for £99.95, which includes 2 free limited edition pod cups worth £20.

It comes in a range of colours, from copper, charcoal and white. However if you want to buy the starter kit with the different hot chocolate flavours, the price rises.

Ranging from £20 to £53 for the different starter packs – which include classic and milky options – it can add up to over £152.
