Epic hot chocolate

Homemade Hot Chocolate

Serves 8-10

  • 2 pints semi-skimmed milk

  • For the epic hot chocolate mix

  • 2 tablespoons Horlicks

  • 2 tablespoons cornflour

  • 3 tablespoons icing sugar

  • 4 tablespoons quality organic cocoa

  • 100 g good-quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids), finely grated

  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon

  • 1 pinch sea salt

Pour the milk into a large pan, and bring almost to the boil over a medium heat.



Meanwhile, add all the chocolate mix ingredients to a large jar and give it a good shake to combine. You need around 10 heaped tablespoons of the chocolate mix for this amount of milk. Simply spoon the chocolate mix into the hot milk, give it a good whisk and leave to bubble away for a few minutes before serving. You're looking for that gorgeous, thick, almost claggy, knockout texture.

This hot chocolate is off the scale. It's so simple to make and is much better than that shop-bought stuff you get, which is often full of rubbish and probably hasn't got much chocolate in it anyway. I don't want you to feel cheated, I want you to have the real thing… life's too short not to.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
