Velvetiser Recipes

When cake and cocktails combine… @eatnlondon has a very special Velvetiser recipe for you. It’s a guaranteed winner!

At Hotel Chocolat, we love cake, especially a classic red velvet. We also love chilled chocolate beverages to keep us cool and satiated in the hot weather. Who knew these worlds could be combined? Well, the talented @eatnlondon has come up with a creative Chilled Red Velvet Cocktail recipe using the one and only Velvetiser.

Making a Red Velvet Cocktail

Equipment you’ll need

  • The Velvetiser
  • A small bowl
  • A chilled glass
  • A creme brulee torch (optional)

Ingredients

  • 250ml cold milk of your choice
  • Hotel Chocolat White Chocolate Sachet
  • Red food colouring
  • Marshmallow fluff
  • Whipped cream
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Ice cubes

Method

Step one: Place a dollop of marshmallow fluff in a small bowl and dip the rim of your glass in it until generously covered. Cover the glass rim with marshmallow fluff.

Step two: Pour half the cold milk into your glass with a few ice cubes.

Step three: Then pour the rest of the milk in the Velvetiser, making sure it covers the whisk.

Step four: After that, add your sachet of White Chocolat flakes into the Velvetiser, followed by a couple of drops of red food colouring.

Step five: Press the button and let the Velvetiser work its magic for 2.5 minutes.

Step six: In the meantime, you can use a creme brulee torch to gently heat the marshmallow fluff around the rim of your glass until it turns golden brown.

Step seven: Once that’s done, pour the delicious mixture into the glass and top with as much whipped cream and mini marshmallows as you fancy.

How to enjoy your Red Velvet Cocktail

This showstopping dessert in a cup is a great way to impress your friends — and all in the two and a half minutes it takes for the Velvetiser to churn your ingredients into silky-smooth perfection!

Whether you’re hosting an afternoon tea with a chocolate twist or serving them at a summer barbecue, these Red Velvet Cocktail delights are sure to make an impression. Drink alongside your favourite nibbles or enjoy as a satisfying yet refreshing pudding.

And if white chocolate isn’t your thing? No problem, you could always adapt the recipe to include a sachet of cocoa-rich Milky 50% Hot Chocolate flakes for a deeper flavour. You may not get the same striking pink colour, but we can guarantee it will still taste just as delicious.

This is an alcohol-free recipe but if you fancy a dessert cocktail with a little more of a kick, you could add a glug of your favourite tipple. Perhaps a drizzle of Chocolat Cream Liqueur for even more indulgence. Why not mix and match with a classy White Chocolate Martini for a delightfully chocolate-fuelled cocktail gathering with friends?
