    Hot chocolate makers - Xmas present idea

    Bit of a long shot, but I'm looking to buy a hot chocolate maker as a Christmas present for my wife, and wondered if anyone on here had any recommendations?

    Not a personal recommendation, but a friend has one of these and speaks quite highly of it: Chocolatières and Hot Chocolate Makers

    A kettle and a cup and a jar of instant hot chocolate is all you need...

    1 minute in the microwave, give it a stir, another 45 seconds - voila! Not much of a Christmas present tho'

    We don't have a microwave on account of the fact that the government can control your thoughts through the microwave emanations.

    They only need to do that if you don't watch the news and accept your programming like a good little citizen, I hope have your TV wraped in tinfoil too

    You can get Hot Chocolate disks for a Tassimo, with the added bonus that it makes great coffee. If you want to be more authentic, maybe Thorntons or Whittards might have something?

    MY RECIPE:

    1 x 500mg bar of Cadbury's Milk Chocolate
    1 x 500ml of Double Cream
    2 x Cadbury's Flakes
    1 x tin of Fussells Condensed Milk
    1 x 150ml of preferred spirit - rum or brandy

    Melt the bar of chocolate in a large bowl over simmering water
    Add the condensed milk, stirring as you add it
    Add the cream, stirring as you add it
    Add the alcohol, stirring as you add it
    Pour into a nice big tall mug or glass
    Break up Cadbury's Flakes and sprinkle liberally over the top
    Hide somewhere where partner / kids / other relatives can't find you and demand to have some whilst you drink it. You'll be on the ceiling and drunk at the same time with all that sugar and alcohol but who cares. Don't suggest you do it at work though.
