Best ever hot choc

Gigi Perry 14 November 2013

Take that, Wonka.

Ingredients: cup of whole milk, handful of grated dark chocolate, cocoa powder, pinch of cinnamon, vanilla pod seeds/extract, chocolate ice cream, nutmeg


  1. Slowly heat the milk in a saucepan.
  2. Mix together the chocolate, cocoa, cinnamon and vanilla before adding to the milk. Give it a champion-worthy whisk.
  3. Leave on the hob for a further few minutes to bubble away.
  4. Pour into your favourite mug before adding a scoop or two of ice cream and giving a good stir. Dust with lots of grated chocolate and nutmeg.
  5. Luxuriate in guilty pleasure.

Top tip: Ground chilli, cayenne pepper, espresso, brandy, caramel, orange zest, peanut butter, or even nutella can all be added at your discretion . . .
