The Perfect Hot Chocolate for Christmas

Thanking Kamini for sharing such a simple to do, yet delicious recipe. So this is coming in a little late but its so good that I just had to share.

I made it last evening as I have been down with a bout of flu and trust me it was such a treat.


Highly recommended to be had, snuggled up in a blanket while reading a very good book!

You can also top with some marshmallows which I did not add but Im certain that would be heaven.

Serves: 1  |  Prep Time: 10 mins  |  Cook Time: 25 mins



1 glass of whole milk

1 ½ tbsp granulated sugar

30 g of dark chocolate, roughly chopped

20 g of milk chocolate, roughly chopped

½ vanilla pod

½ cinnamon stick

Pinch of nutmeg

Pinch of salt

2 drops of almond liqueur

Whipped cream for garnish


Bring the milk to a low simmer with the chocolate, sugar, salt and spices, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon.

NOTE: The milk should never boil, and the chocolate must not burn.

Once the chocolate has melted, remove from heat.

Fish out the cinnamon and vanilla pod.

Stir in the almond liqueur.

Pour into your serving mug or glass and top with some whipped cream.
