With Valentine's Day coming up this weekend, I thought this would be a great time to tell you about somethin' I simply looooooooooooove!
Well. Other than my smokin', hot hubby. Whom I absolutely adore.
But as y'all know, I've got this totally supported by my hubby lest we get all confused here love affair with hot chocolate. I make it every single day. And, my new recipe (thanks to my baby sis!) is the best recipe for hot chocolate I've ever had.
And, I didn't think it could get any better.
Then I made it in the Bialetti Hot Chocolate Maker. And, I am now singing its praises to everyone.
And, clearly, so are a whole lotta others. 'Cause I went to the retailer's website where I purchased it, and found this:
I stumbled upon this product while doing some post-Christmas sale shopping. My hubby was with me and said, "This thing was invented for you."
OH MY STARS, y'all. It most certainly was!
You simply add milk and shaved chocolate, hot chocolate mix (I use World's Best Hot Chocolate recipe), or chocolate syrup to the Bialetti Hot Chocolate Maker and it heats the milk, melts the chocolate, and froths it. All in the turn of a button.
And, in six little itty, bitty minutes.
I've been able to try it out on several friends now, and they all agree: THAT THING IS AWESOME!
But, since this is "The Ultimate Valentine's Day Hot Chocolate Giveaway", there's more! The winner will also receive the Williams-Sonoma Hot Chocolate Pot. This is a simpler version of the Bialetti. Just fill the pot with milk or water, heat it in the microwave and add chocolate syrup, shavings, chips or powdered cocoa. Then set the lid in place, insert the frother and mix to perfection!
And, lastly, because I'm a peppermint freak of sorts, the winner also gets a box of Williams- Sonoma Peppermint North Poles. Even though Santa is probably passed out and in full hibernation mode, these chocolate-dipped poles from his side of town are a GREAT addition to a hot, steamy mug of hot chocolate! Just stir into a mug and enjoy.To sum up all this chocolate lovin', the prize package includes:
The Bialetti H0t Chocolate Maker (Retail value, $100)
The Williams-Sonoma Hot Chocolate Pot (Retail value, $40)
A box of Peppermint North Poles (Retail value, $17)
