Here’s a little treat for you for on Christmas Eve (or any other evening you fancy it). Hot chocolate is so easy to make at home. It’s 2 ingredients; milk and chocolate. Or 4 ingredients if you want to be extra decadent; milk, chocolate, cream and marshmallows.
For this you can use whatever type of chocolate you have or like the best. I used 70% dark chocolate and I also used whole milk but if you want to you can use skimmed or semi-skimmed but this will make it less rich.
The recipe I used was a decadent one. Good Food came through for me again.
- 600ml milk
- 140ml double cream
- 100g chocolate
Mix all the ingredients together and bring to the boil gently. Make sure that you stir or whisk it so that it isn’t lumpy. Serve in a cup or mug.
There’s a suggestion that you can add rum or brandy on the website which is a fantastic idea. I was going to try it but I forgot in all the excitement of marshmallows. I’ve got left over hot chocolate so I’ll try that tomorrow!
