Choose Hot Chocolate Gifts for a Sweet Surprise

Delight someone special with one of the hot chocolate gifts from Williams Sonoma. They're also great for treating yourself when you're craving something sweet and soothing. Gourmet hot chocolate isn't just for the winter months -- it can be enjoyed all year. You can even freeze prepared hot chocolate for a chilly treat that's refreshing on hot days.

Types of Hot Chocolate Gifts

The hot chocolate at Williams Sonoma comes in gift-ready tins and is available in several delicious flavors. All of the varieties are European-style and are made with finely-shaved Guittard chocolate. Some of the options you may find available include:

  • Peppermint: This hot chocolate is crafted with semisweet and milk chocolates, then it's infused with peppermint oil for a contrast of flavors.
  • Double Dark: If you enjoy an intense chocolate experience, consider this variety of gourmet hot chocolate. It contains semisweet and bittersweet chocolate for a taste that's not too sugary.
  • Salted Caramel: Another option for hot chocolate is salted caramel. It contains semisweet and milk chocolate, enhanced with rich caramel and sea salt for a cafe-style experience at home.
  • Sweet Ground Chocolate: This luxurious cocoa powder is made from premium chocolate and flavored with sugar and vanilla. It melts quickly into milk, cream or coffee for a sweet beverage in just minutes.

Prepare your beverage the traditional way with a hot chocolate pot. This nonstick aluminum pot has a ceramic insert and functions like a double boiler, gently melting the chocolate shavings into milk or cream without scorching. The handle stays cool for safe, easy carrying, while the spout lets you pour the hot chocolate into mugs without spilling.

Marshmallows for Gourmet Hot Chocolate

If you enjoy marshmallows with your gourmet hot chocolate, consider a hot chocolate kit. You can also purchase marshmallows separately from Williams Sonoma. The selection includes mini vanilla marshmallows and those shaped like snowflakes and letters of the alphabet. There are also peppermint marshmallows that add a cool, frosty flavor to your hot chocolate.

Discover an array of hot chocolate gifts at Williams Sonoma. There's also plenty of other gourmet gifts from which to choose, such as tea and coffee sets.
