Hello, and welcome back to Blogmas! If you didn’t know, Blogmas is basically where bloggers post every day in December leading up to Christmas! I did it last year, which you can read HERE, and I said I wasn’t going to do it again this year because it’s a lot of work. But, Zack read last years and convinced me to do it again, so here I am!
Anyway, I’m starting the next 25 days with the perfect hot chocolate recipe. Credit to Zack’s mum for this, as her hot chocolates are unreeeeeeal. I thought this would be a good place to start because, well, who doesn’t love a good hot chocolate to warm them up in December?
Ok, so let’s go…
Hot Chocolate Powder (I use Cadburys)
Marshmallows (I use these vegan/vegetarian ones)
2 Segments Chocolate Orange (optional)
In a cute (Christmas themed optional) mug, add 2 teaspoons of hot chocolate powder and one teaspoon of brown sugar. Add a small amount of milk, and combine into a paste.
Add more milk until the mug is 1/2 full.
Step 3Now add the hot water. This should be from a kettle that has JUST boiled.
Add the 2 chocolate orange segments and stir until melted.
Now it’s time to decorate! Add as much squirts cream and marshmallows as you desire!
And there you have it! A perfect-tasting, drinkable temperatured, chocolate orange hot chocolate! Yum..
(For optimal enjoyment, try with Rington’s Ginger Biscuits. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.)
Thanks for reading!
