Hot chocolate

For anyone who likes chocolate, this is the perfect drink for uplifting your spirits on a gloomy day!

Rich, thick indulgent hot chocolate- none of the thin watery stuff that happens when you use a hot chocolate mix..

You could use milk, coconut milk or almond milk and they all just taste great!

Let’s get started, shall we?

Cuisine: European/ American
Course: Anytime of the day! Seriously!!
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Serving: One

1.5 cups- Milk/ Coconut milk/ Almond milk

50 gram- 30% dark chocolate / Milk chocolate

1 tbsp- Cocoa powder

1 tbsp- Cornflour/ corn starch

  1. Chop the chocolate or grate into fine pieces and set aside
  2. Warm half cup of milk in a microwave or a pan
  3. Combine this with the cocoa powder and cornflour ensuring that no lumps form
  4. Heat the one cup of milk in a pan and keep stirring so that it doesn’t boil over
  5. Add in the chopped/grated chocolate and let it melt completely and combine
  6. Add in the remaining combined half cup of milk to this and keep stirring for another minute.
    This will now start to thicken
  7. Turn off the heat and let it sit for a minute
    Pour into a mug and enjoy!
  • Use milk chocolate or dark chocolate based on your preference. The darker the chocolate, the richer it feels , but also bitter. If this is not to your taste, add in sugar while adding the cocoa-cornflour-milk mix to the mix.
