How useful is a chocolate teapot? Recently I was given the opportunity to find out by reviewing the Schokolat Chocolate Teapot. As a chocoholic I was pretty pleased and the answer? It’s more useful than you might have thought!
The teapot is hand-made in the UK and is made with real Belgian chocolate. It’s much heavier than it looks and would make the perfect gift for family or friends with a sweet tooth.
We decided to use ours to make hot chocolate but you can also use it for fondue by adding hot water and dipping marshmallows, strawberries or anything else you fancy into the teapot and topping it up with more hot water whenever the chocolate starts to run out.
To make our hot chocolates we put two teaspoons of organic cocoa powder into the teapot then filled it two thirds full with water and stirred. Holding the lid John poured the thick chocolate drink into our teacups and we savoured the rich flavours.
Then we couldn’t resist taking a bite.. You can refill the teapot as many times as you like and once you’re finished you can break it up and eat it or do what we’ve done and store it in the fridge for whenever you fancy a nibble!
The chocolate teapot is available to buy here and maybe the next time you hear the phrase “as useful as a chocolate teapot” it will remind you that sometimes they really can be. However I wouldn’t recommend using one to make a cup of tea.
