Today, we are making homemade, absolutely fabulous, hot chocolate. (Disclaimer: This is not powder.)
|Again, obviously not one I made.|
- 600ml milk
- 142ml pot double cream
- 100g chopped chocolate
Pour the milk, double cream and chopped chocolate into a pan. Bring gently to the boil, whisking until smooth. Serve in individual cups or mugs topped with mini marshmallows and a little grated chocolate.
The recipe says it makes four cups, and nutrition information is on the website.
I wish I had time to actually make these more often.
Now here's the fun part: You can add whatever other spices you want. You can add cinnamon, vanilla, maple, peppermint (or just get peppermint candies and let them dissolve in the hot chocolate), chili spices, cardamom. . . whatever you want. However, add a tiny amount, taste it, then add more. Spices are a lot stronger than you think.
Also, you can use different types of chocolate for a wider variety.
What's your favorite spice?
