My Go-To Hot Chocolate Recipe

Work keeps me so busy at this time of year so I just love to come home, get a hot drink in a festive mug and curl up to watch a movie. So here’s a quick and easy hot chocolate recipe for a cosy night in!

Makes 2:
200g Cocoa Solids (I use around 70% but you could use more or less)
3 Cups of milk

Optional extras:
A teaspoon of cinnamon
Whipped cream
Marshmallows
Cocoa powder

To make the hot chocolate, pour the 3 cups of milk into a saucepan and pop it on the hob on a medium heat.

As the milk starts to heat up, stir it slowly and start adding the chocolate until all 200g has melted in leaving no lumps!

If youโ€™ve decided to add the cinnamon, you can add that here

When the milk starts to simmer, pour it into 2 glasses and top with cream and/or marshmallows. I always love to sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on top but you could sprinkle some cocoa powder on top!


I hope you’re having a wonderful December so far!
