I love hot chocolate, it is one of my favourite drinks throughout the winter, sometimes in summer. You can sweeten with whatever sweetener or sugar you prefer, my favourite is Demerara sugar – or Sweet Freedom. You can, of course, use any good quality chocolate in this recipe and if preferred use a combination of dark and milk chocolate.
600 ml milk
160 ml double cream
150 grams Hotel Chocolate dark chocolate drops
Optional – Cognac, Brandy or other liqueur – to taste
- Put the milk and double cream into a saucepan over a gently heat, slowly bring up to the boil.
- Place the chopped chocolate into a heatproof jug.
- When the milk is ready, immediately pour over the chocolate, while whisking until smooth.
- Serve in pretty glass cups, top with mini marshmallows and Cadbury´s chocolate flake (crumbled), or grated chocolate of your choice.
