Hot Chocolate Update

So far I have tried many recipes. The recipes with the real chocolate often ended up separating or not combining well. The best recipe I used had chocolate and some cocoa powder.

This hot chocolate is sour and dark; a great indulgence for the real hot chocolate lovers. To sweeten it add more sugar or marshmallows or whipped cream and then sprinkle with cinnamon.

A Real Hot Chocolate
5tbsp cocoa powder
2tbsp castor sugar
6oz milk chocolate
1 cup + 4tbsp semi-skinned milk
Marshmallows or whipped cream to serve
Cinnamon to put on top

  1. In a saucepan add cocoa powder, sugar and 4 tbsp milk.
  2. Heat until the sugar dissolves, and the cocoa powder is combined.
  3. Add the remaining milk with the chocolate.
  4. Melt the chocolate and ensure the drink is piping hot before serving.
  5. Serve with some whipped cream or marshmallows.

Hot Chocolate served with some gingerbread men.

Additions or Variations:
  • Adding a pinch of chili powder
  • A cinnamon stick
  • A little instant expresso powder for a hot mocha
  • Use Maya gold chocolate and sprinkle with orange zest
  • Use half mint chocolate and half dark chocolate, finish with a after eight mint.
