House of Dorchester Chocolate Fudge Stir Hot Chocolate

I'm one of those types of people that could quite happily drink warm comforting drinks all year round; I don't know whether it's just because, to be frank, England doesn't get all that warm, or whether I am just happy to drink hot chocolate, tea, coffee even in the hottest of temperatures. Either way I think there's something nice on a night time snuggling down with a hot drink.

There's so many different types of hot chocolate now, but chocolate stirrers seem to be becoming ever more popular, this one I bring you here is from House of Dorchester and is of the chocolate fudge variety. Taking it out of its packaging it has a very strong fudgy smell which is certainly followed through on flavour.

I had a little nibble of the chocolate itself to try before making it into a hot chocolate, quite sweet, infact a tad too sweet for me, but once stirred into warm milk to make a delicious hot chocolate the sweetness is neutralised slightly and becomes more creamy and you're left with a nice fudgy chocolate mess on the end of the stirring spoon for you to lick off at your leisure as you sip down the hot chocolate.

If you've got a big sweet tooth and love anything of a chocolate fudge nature then this is certainly a hot chocolate for you and is definitely better than a lot of the packet mixes you'll find floating around.

Taste- 7/10 - It delivered a good chocolate fudge flavour and once mixed with milk it wasn't too sweet.
Texture - 6.8/10 - Created a good creamy luxurious hot chocolate even when made with skimmed milk.
Appearance - 7/10 - Looks nice and packaged in a good small handbag sized container so easily transportable.
Price - 7.2/10 - These vary depending on where you buy them, but I've recently seen them in my local Asda for 99p which I think its good compared to the 40-50p you may pay for packet mixes.
Overall - 7/10 - A good  commercial stir in hot chocolate made well.

Anyone with a sweet tooth will love this.

You can pick these up from all over the place, supermarkets, department stores, or the House of Dorchester website.
