Friday Lush: Grown Up Hot Chocolate
January 18, 2013
Posted in Friday Lush
If you live in the UK then you don’t need me to tell you it’s Baltic out there. The snow is falling here and I’m waiting for the inevitable call to say that school’s out and sledging is in. Any minute now I’m sure. Much to the amusement of Adam who spends large chunks of the year working in Norway in tonnes of snow with zero disruption.
I couldn’t face the thought of a cold drink tonight, nothing with ice and nothing from the fridge, that’s just wrong. So, well this is not rocket science but grown up hot chocolate it is.
Don’t be shy and make your own hot chocolate with any chocolate that you have in the house.
- Warm a mugful of milk in a pan and melt about 20g per person of chocolate in – good, dark is always best.
- Keep whisking as you go.
- Add a dot of vanilla or a sprinkle of cinnamon too to bring it alive
- I promise, you’ll never go back to the powdered stuff again.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. That’s what I say!
