When it's cold and miserable outside, nothing soothes the soul like a rich, warming hot chocolate. Made with care, with hot milk and the best hot chocolate beads, our delicious drinking chocolate range is like a warm, comforting hug in a mug. Once you've tried hot chocolate the Cartwright & Butler way, we're sure you'll never go back to chocolate powder in a tin.

All of our hot chocolates are made with the most delicious, best quality chocolates, formed into glistening chocolate beads ready to stir into hot, creamy milk. For the chocolate traditionalists, there are simple milk and dark chocolate varieties where the great taste of top quality chocolate is the star. Presented in our signature embossed glass jars, topped with a ceramic lid and flip top fastening, they're the perfect kitchen accessory for the chocolate lover in your life. Plus you can use the jars again once the chocolate's gone.

Fancy a drink with a little something extra? Try our Dark Chocolate and Orange hot chocolate - two classic flavours combined for a comforting sweet treat you can enjoy any time of the day. Made simply with the richest dark chocolate and the best quality orange oil, this hot chocolate is sure to become a firm favourite.

Can't get enough of salted caramel? We've got a hot chocolate for you. Our chocolate drink with salted caramel pairs smooth, rich chocolate with decadent salted caramel flavour. This luxury hot chocolate beats your favourite coffee shop treat hands down.
