Recipe for the Perfect Christmas Hot Chocolate

With the cold winter nights in full swing and the Christmas holidays just around the corner, why not indulge in a festive-themed, homemade hot chocolate? Better than any you could buy from the shops.

200ml full-fat milk
4 tablespoons of hot chocolate mix
30g grated dark chocolate
A pinch of cinnamon
A pinch of grated nutmeg
2 tablespoons of brandy
Squirty cream
Hot Chocolate
Here’s what you’re gonna do…

  • Place your milk in a saucepan and bring it almost to the boil.
  • Meanwhile, mix your other ingredients, (nutmeg, chocolate powder, grated chocolate, and your brandy) in to a heatproof jug and combine well.
  • When the milk is about to boil, pour it into the jug and whisk until all combined.
  • Serve up immediately into cups/mugs and then top with squirty cream and whatever festive decorations you desire!
