Best Ever Hot Chocolate

    6 minutes

    This drinking chocolate tastes so luxurious and is made from the simplest of ingredients. Use a best quality dark chocolate bar for this, preferably with at least 70% cocoa solids.

    Serves: 2 

    • 100g plain dark chocolate
    • 125ml thickened cream
    • 125ml skim milk

    Preparation:1min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:6min 

    1. Break the chocolate bar into pieces in a small mixing bowl.
    2. Heat the cream and milk in a saucepan (or in the microwave) until it's nearly at a simmer, then remove from heat. Do not allow the cream and milk to boil.
    3. Pour the milk and cream mixture into the bowl and stir together with the chocolate until well combined. Pour into mugs and enjoy.


    For a Mexican touch to your drinking chocolate, add a pinch of cinnamon to the bowl when you mix everything together.
