Ultimate Christmas Hot Chocolate


If, like me, you find it difficult to get warm during the winter months I have the perfect thing for you... Getting cosy on the sofa with a Christmas movie is probably one of my favourite things to do this time of year! The only thing that would make it better is the ULTIMATE Christmas hot chocolate, it is so easy to make and tastes absolutely DELICIOUS! This recipe is simple as it takes a spin on the classic hot chocolate method, but it tastes SO GOOD!

TIMINGS

SERVES: 2 people
PREP TIME: 3-4 minutes

WHAT YOU NEED

565ml of semi-skimmed milk or full cream
2 tablespoons of drinking chocolate
A few marshmallows (I used large ones, but you can use any size you like!)
Sugar (optional) 

METHOD

Firstly, pop the milk into a saucepan and heat slowly. (do not boil!) While its heating, pop a teaspoon of chocolate powder (and the sugar) into your favourite festive mugs. Add a small amount of the warm milk into each cup (just enough to dissolve the powder) Then, pop a few marshmallows into each mug! When the milk reaches a simmer pour it into a flask or any container with a sturdy lid (make sure its sturdy!!) Shake this container for about a minute. Then, pour the milk carefully into your mugs!

You can pop some more marshmallows or chocolate powder on top if you have a sweet tooth!
Enjoy the PERFECT hot chocolate!!
