Hot Chocolate Pot

Hey everybody! Hope you’re having a good week! I’ve sort of disappeared from the blog. We’ve been very busy. You know, eating meatballs and bulle, playing with toys, sleeping in, watching movies. I love that kind of busy. It has felt so great to take a little break, before the big move, before real life gets all crazy-like again.

My sister Anne gave me a fun foodie gift for Christmas, so I thought I would share it with you! It’s the Chef’n Froth & Pour Hot Chocolate Pot from Williams-Sonoma. As with many items at Williams-Sonoma, you certainly do not NEED a hot chocolate pot, but now that I have it in my hot little hands, I am so glad we have it! (Speaking of not needing stuff at Williams-Sonoma, this Hater’s Guide is pretty darn funny. If swearing bothers you, I recommend not clicking through!)

The pot does a great job mixing and frothing up your hot chocolate. Come on, who doesn’t like a little froth? But my favorite part is the pouring spout. The one thing I hate about making hot chocolate is pouring it from the pan to the cups…it’s always such a mess! The hot chocolate pot allows for an easy, tidy pour into the mugs. It’s awesome! I’m sold!

In fact, I think I’ll go froth up some hot chocolate right now.

    What a Great Idea!! Thank you!

  2. It’s cute and hey at least it doesn’t break the bank. we do keurig hot cocoa, whip cream and chocolate syrup. but my oldest who loves hot cocoa would love this 🙂

    Hot cocoa sounds great, especially with all the rain we’ve been getting! I’m glad to know that you are enjoying the holiday season, Jane! But I’m sad that you are moving away from us in NorCal 🙁

    Thats very cute…does it hold enough for 5 kids? If so I may be sold too!

      I believe you can do 32 ounces or so at one time…the amount my kids drink (hardly any, they focus on the marshmallows) it would hold enough for 5 kids! 🙂 that’s 4 adult servings, so it should work!

    It is looking really pretty, this pot makes life so easy for everyone. Thakyou for sharing.

    The pot is cute, and we’ve been making our fair share of hot cocoa here in Wisconsin this winter. But thank you for the link to the William Sonoma ‘hater’s guide’. I still love the store, but that made me laugh out loud (and I needed that!)

    • Jane Maynard

      glad you laughed – I thought it was pretty darn funny…with you, love the store, but it was hilarious!

    A piece of junk, period. Bought it at William Sonoma. No wonder they sold then in clearance and no longer carry them any more. The small motor broke after one use, and there is no place to order a spare part!

    • Jane Maynard

      so glad you commented, good for people to know!

      that is totally a bummer that the motor broke because I love the frothing! mine is still in good shape, will enjoy it as long as it lasts, I suppose!

    I have the Williams Sonoma Froth and pour hot choc pot….bought it last year, haven’t used it yet. My problem is I am diabetic. Does anyone know of a recipe to make sugar free chocolate for it?
