Best ever drinking chocolate

    6 min

    This drinking chocolate tastes so luxurious and is made from the simplest of ingredients. Use a best quality dark chocolate bar for this, preferably organic, with at least 70% cocoa solids.

    Serves: 3 

    • 125ml (4 1/2 fl oz) double cream
    • 125ml (4 1/2 fl oz) semi-skimmed milk
    • 100g (4 oz) plain dark chocolate

    Prep:1min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:6min 

    1. Break the chocolate bar into pieces in a small mixing bowl.
    2. Heat the double cream and milk on the hob until it's nearly at a simmer, then remove from heat. Do not allow the cream and milk to boil.
    3. Pour the milk and cream mixture into the bowl, and stir together with the chocolate until well combined. Pour into demitasses (small coffee cups) and enjoy!


    For an extra touch to your drinking chocolate, add a pinch of cinnamon to the bowl when you mix everything together.
