Basic hot chocolate recipe
100g dark chocolate
sugar to taste
grate the dark chocolate into a saucepan of warm milk, adding sugar to taste, then whipping to make frothy. We heated ours today on a campfire in the snow.
1. For grown ups add a glug of ameretto, a pinch of sea salt and some crumbled ameretti biscuits on top (my current fav!)
2. For a spicy hot chocolate add a cinnamon stick and star anise to the chocolate, add whipped cream, and grate some nutmeg on top
3. For children add the seeds of a vanilla pod and mini marshmallows
4. Or for something really special add some squirty cream and a crunchy or flake crumbled on top!
