Lover's chilli hot chocolate

    15 min

    So, its that time of the year again to celebrate the most overrated and expensive day. Yes, you heard it right. I am not a Valentine's day person. I don't agree with paying double the price to book tables in restaurants just to sit with a bunch of other strangers and claim to celebrate love. I would rather spend that cash somewhere else and celebrate the day in a much more romantic way. Why not make something for our loved one's with our own bare hands? It takes just 10 minutes!

    Serves: 2 

    • 85g good quality plain chocolate, chopped
    • 1 pinch of chilli flakes
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 125ml cream
    • 350ml full fat milk

    • 2 to 3 teaspoons sweetened hot chocolate powder
    • marshmallows for decoration

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Combine the chocolate pieces, chilli flakes, vanilla and cream in a measuring jug. Microwave on high for no more than 20 to 30 seconds. Take care, as chocolate burns easily.
    2. Remove from microwave, stir till smooth. Add the milk, then microwave for 1 minute on high. Stir in the powders, mix till smooth and microwave for another minute. Check the temperature; if you want it hotter, heat for a further 30 to 45 seconds.
    3. Divide between two tall glass mugs and top with marshmallows. Sprinkle a few chilli flakes over top for that extra sizzle!
