What to do when the weather turns to custard? Make a warming Hot Chocolate from scratch.
i love the velvety richness that you get from using actual chocolate in your hot chocolate- this reciped took me about 5 mins to make so just as easy as boiling the jug!
(makes 1 cup )
1 cup of milk with a vanilla pod or vanila essence- heat gently then whisk in 1 tbsp of Cocoa and about 1/2 a tablespoon of sugar then i added about 25gm of chopped dark chocolate and continued to whisk till all the chocolate was melted ( if you adore chocolate go hard add more to your liking ) pour into a mug and top with freshly whipped cream and of course more chocolate you could also add marshmallows but i didnt have any.
My husband thoroughly enjoyed this while i sat and watched :)
