Hot Chocolate Milk recipe
There are very few people who would argue against hot chocolate being the coziest drink for cold winter months. There’s various ways of making the drink with a number of additional ingredients. Today we’ll take you through a hot chocolate drink with real chocolate. We’re not making hot cocoa – cocoa powder dissolved into milk or water.
RECIPE SERVES 2
- 4 cups full cream milk
- 170g dark chocolate (60%) (or 85g dark/85g milk)
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick
- Small scrape of vanilla bean (or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)
- Pinch of salt
STEP BY STEP PROCESS
- Head down to the supermarket and get your hands on some delicious, quality chocolate. You might want to go with an artisan brand, Lindt, or Cadbury. A 70% cocoa dark chocolate will add richness, but feel free to go with milk chocolate, or a mix of the two.
- Feel free to try out some additional ingredients like some vanilla bean, salt, or a cinnamon stick.
- Melt the chocolate in a double boiler and add it to the warm milk.
- To finish off, put it in a giant mug. You might want to add some toppings like mini marshmallows, whipped cream or ice cream. Feel free to also coat the inside of the mug with nutella.
