For a warm and cozy moment of holiday relaxation, froth up some delicious hot chocolate spiced with flavors of the season. The Capresso froth Select makes it easy to create rich, frothy hot chocolate using chocolate chips, chunks, syrup or powder.
Celebrate the season with Peppermint Hot Chocolate, garnished with festive marshmallows and a candy cane — or a Frothy Hot Butterscotch Cocktail with Oat Milk. Or indulge in the classic combination of chocolate and peanut butter in this recipe for Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate. From sweet to sophisticated, the possibilities are endless — create your own personalized beverage with your favorite flavorings, toppings, type of chocolate, and type of regular or non-dairy milk.
The froth Select is easy to use, with simple one-button operation and illuminated control. There are four settings to choose from: cold froth, hot froth, hot milk or hot chocolate. Capresso’s special hot chocolate function sets this frother apart by allowing you to add chocolate chips or chunks directly into the pitcher during the frothing process.
This versatile countertop appliance comes with a premium stainless steel pitcher and can also prepare café quality frothed milk for rich cappuccinos, lattes, flat whites and other specialty beverages. Or use the froth Select to make flavored steamers, chai tea latte, matcha latte, hot cider and iced fruit lattes. With so many beverage options — froth or steamed, hot or cold, a world of flavors — the froth Select makes a welcome gift that will be used and appreciated all throughout the year.
Attention to detail is a hallmark of Capresso design. The removable stainless steel milk pitcher comes with a large and comfortable stay-cool handle, and it holds up to 20 ounces for heating or 16 ounces for frothing. It is dishwasher safe, for everyday convenience.
Dual auto shut-off ensures safety. The froth Select turns off automatically when frothing or heating is complete, or when the pitcher is removed from the base. Two frothing disks and one heating disk are included, and they store securely in the bottom of the base. By using different disks with different settings, you can control and vary milk texture for a variety of specialty beverages.

Peppermint Hot Chocolate
16 oz. chocolate milk
4 oz. white chocolate chips
1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
Marshmallows and candy cane, for garnish
Insert the frothing disk in the Capresso froth Select. Add milk to frothing pitcher and choose the CHOC setting. Start the cycle by pressing the center of the selector dial. After a few minutes, the illuminated light around the selector dial will start to blink, then remove the lid and add all the white chocolate chips before the illuminated light stops blinking. Add 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract, replace the lid, and wait for the froth to complete the frothing process and then automatically shut off. Pour into glasses, top with marshmallows and garnish with a candy cane.
