I don’t know about you but I absolutely adore a hot chocolate. But it has to be a proper hot chocolate, you know the kind?
When I was a little girl my mum used to make the most awesome hot chocolates. Made with several scoops of hot chocolate and with the full fat milk boiling on the stove until it almost bubbles over the top of the pan and burns on the plate. But it was thick and chocolatey and on a cold winter’s evening in front of a roaring fire was the perfect treat on a Sunday night before school the next day or when the weather outside was cold and frosty. Sometimes there would be cream on top and a sprinkling of cocoa powder.
So for me a hot chocolate is a treat that is linked to so many childhood memories and I only ever have a hot chocolate as a rare treat.
However, I’ve often been disappointed in my adult experiences when buying a hot chocolate. Often presented with some watered down example that has been made with hot water and a scoop of cocoa powder and very little care or love in the making. So I leave politely but disappointed at the experience.
So for the Toot Sweets Van when we decided we were making and serving hot chocolate I knew that I didn’t want my customers to go away with that feeling. We searched for a quality hot chocolate that tasted great and had the right texture too. We also only make our hot chocolates with full fat milk. It’s an Italian blend but has a similar texture and taste to a Belgian Hot Chocolate.
Of course we had to have toppings – squirty cream, a chocolate flake, some melted chocolate or sprinkles and of course large melted marshmallows. Perfect!
So if you are having a wedding or event and book the Toot Sweets Van as your mobile bar through the day you also have the added advantage of our bringing along the retro style coffee machine to make Fair trade coffees, teas and our decadent hot chocolates in the evening for when the sun goes down and the chill sets so our hot drinks are available to warm your guests. Of course not everyone wants an alcoholic drink in the daytime – sometimes all that’s required is a good cup of tea! So we have those onboard too!
As an addition ask us to bring our freezer – that means that you also have the option of providing artisan icecreams for your guests too!
