Epic hot chocolate

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.

Ingredients

  • 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
  •  

    Method

    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.
