The Velvetiser™ : Your Private Chocolate Barista
Step-by-Step Guide to Chocolate Whipped Cream Perfection
1. Add 250ml (9oz) heavy cream and a splash of milk to your Velvetiser. Plant based cream works too, just make sure it's marked as whippable.
2. Add 1 sachet of your favourite Hotel Chocolat hot chocolate flakes. Classic 70% creates a perfect malty flavour and is our favourite, but this recipe works with any flakes so get creative!
3. Start up your Velvetiser and watch as it slowly transforms into a smooth, liquid heaven.
4. Decant into a bowl & chill. An hour in the fridge should be enough or if you're in a rush (who can blame you) put the bowl into a larger bowl full of ice to cool it quickly. Yes, it's ok to taste it 😉.
5. Once chilled, it's time to start whipping. The best (easiest) way is to use a Whipped Cream Canister (we use this one from Amazon, but this one looks like it matches the Velvetiser nicely!). Simply fill with your chocolate cream & follow the manufacture instructions. If you don't have one - grab your whisk & whip it until you have stiff peaks.
6. Top your hot chocolate, add any sprinkles you want. Now stop, breathe and savour your moment of pure chocolate perfection.
