- 2 pints semi-skimmed milk
For The Epic Hot Chocolate Mix2 tablespoons Horlicks2 tablespoons cornflour3 tablespoons icing sugar4 tablespoons quality organic cocoa100 g good-quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids), finely grated1 pinch ground cinnamon1 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.
