Hot chocolate

3 Sep


Who said hot chocolate is only for winter ?
There’s something satisfying about sitting outside  having a relaxing cup of hot chocolate in  peace .

Serves 4

1 vanilla pod, split and seeds scraped out

1 litre/1¾ pints milk

150g plain chocolate, broken into small pieces

sugar, to taste

freshly grated nutmeg, for topping

1.Heat the vanilla pod,seeds and milk in a saucepan until boiling.

2. Remove the pan from the heat and add the chocolate pieces, stirring until the chocolate melts.

3. Whisk the hot chocolate  until frothy on top and add sugar, to taste. Serve with cream and  a dusting of nutmeg.

Also nice with a hint of chilli 😀

    I’ve never tried making hot choc with chocolate pieces, do they sink to the bottom Phil? I like the idea of a hint of chilli. And, meant to s,ay that is a very lovely photograph !

      Hi joanna. The chocolate just melts into the milk and makes it very smooth . 😀
