Your Dolce Gusto machine can make more than just coffee – it can also brew a delicious cup of hot and creamy cocoa.
This is the perfect drink for cold winter evenings, birthdays or as a real treat for a loved one.

Café René has created a hot cocoa for kids, but don’t be fooled into thinking that you won’t enjoy it yourself! This is a hot cocoa for the whole family!

And if you suffer from chocolate cravings, this is a great way to keep them at bay. Unlike Café René’s Chocolate, you only need one pod for this hot cocoa, and the flavour has been adapted slightly for kids.

Let your kids make their own cocoa quick and easy, with just one pod, and save on all the hassle of finding cocoa powder, sugar and milk, and all the mess afterwards.

No matter who the cocoa is for, Café René has made it easy to brew a delicious creamy cup in no time.

I am a great fan of the various coffee pods you offer and they never disappoint with flavour and quality, however, these chocolate pods are absolutely awful, even as an espresso sized drink they are totally watery and flavourless. I would go as far to say they need removing from your shelves. Read More

It's really nice and creamy. I use Milk Pods together with the Chocolate Pods and it's really lush.
Also the price is really great.
Delivery was very quick

Makes a small cup, but the kids like it; they add a little milk to it. I found the pods were bursting and messy, but making a tiny pin prick hole I the top before putting in the machine reduces the pressure and it doesn’t leak. Read More
My kids love it. They've had one every night since it's been delivered. Will definitely be ordering more Read More
