Top 5 Gifts For The Chocolate Lover In Your Life
If you want to buy a gift for someone in your life who loves chocolate, then on the surface, you’ve got a pretty easy job! However, if you want to get them a gift that’s truly special, you might need to think a little bigger than a bar of chocolate from the grocery store.
If you want to show the chocolate lover in your life that you really think a lot of them, here are some gift ideas for you.
Austria is well known for its extra special sweet treats, and Mozartkugeln chocolate is no exception! Traditional Mozart Kugel chocolate is made by taking a ball of pistachio marzipan and then covering that in a layer of nougat – but not just any nougat! The decadent nougat inside Mozartkugeln is made from pistachios, hazelnuts, and almonds, making it rich and absolutely delicious. Finally, the nougat-covered marzipan is dipped into high-quality dark chocolate on the end of a wooden stick, which is then removed as the Mozartkugeln is allowed to harden.
Mozartkugeln, sometimes called ‘Mozart Balls,’ was created by Paul Furst in 1890 in Salzburg. It was named after Mozart, who was born there. It’s best enjoyed with a cup of coffee. Delicious!
If the chocolate lover in your life also loves a kitchen gadget, then a velvetizer is a pretty safe bet!
It’s a gadget that is used to create barista-style hot chocolate, the kind you would usually only get in a high-end coffee shop but in the comfort of your home. It works by heating and whisking milk and chocolate flakes together until you have a rich and foamy cup of hot chocolate ready to go.
Fondue is just awesome, isn’t it? What could be better than melting a pot of chocolate (or cheese if you fancy something savory) and then dipping whatever you like in it! A chocolate fondue set will usually contain a pot and some kind of heat source, plus skewers for dipping. The idea is that you melt the chocolate at the table, and then the pot stays warm so you can dip as you chat with your guests.
It’s possible to make fondue without a set, but it does make the job much easier and ensure that everything is at the right temperature.
If you want to combine a chocolate-themed gift together with some quality time, then you can’t go far wrong with a trip to one of the world’s best chocolate factories. Whether you go all out and fly to Europe to enjoy some of the traditional factories there or take a day trip to a factory closer to your home, your loved one is sure to really appreciate the thought and effort that goes into planning a chocolate-themed trip.
Another gift idea that combines chocolate with quality time, a chocolate-making class is the gift that keeps on giving! You’ll get to enjoy a fun day or evening together and then forever have the skills to make chocolate of your own.
