Autumn Hot Chocolate Recipe!


Now the evenings are becoming more autumnal, I thought I'd share my Hot Chocolate recipe with you. It's perfect for a cosy Wednesday evening in with The Great British Bake Off... Enjoy!

Serves 1 but easily multiplied

Ingredients:

4 squares milk chocolate
275ml milk
Marshmallows, to serve

Method

1) Add the milk to a small saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring constantly to avoid catching

2) As soon as the milk has come to the boil, remove from the heat and add the milk chocolate. Stir until the chocolate has completely melted into the milk

3) Pour into a mug or heatproof glass and top with grated chocolate and marshmallows

I'm interested to try this with a flavoured chocolate, such as chilli chocolate or orange flavoured chocolate. You could also add a splash of cream into the milk before heating

The marshmallows I enjoyed with my hot chocolate are handmade Chocolate Mousse Marshmallows from The Marshmallow Lady. I hadn't tried handmade marshmallows before and they were lovely- really light in texture compared to shop bought marshmallows and with a great flavour. 

What is your favourite hot drink at this time of year? I'd love to hear your recipes and recommendations!
