One of the best things with the darker winter months? We have all the excuses in the world to have cozy nights in, in our comfies, while binge-watching some of our favourite TV-shows. And for that, we obviously need to sip on something hot & yummy, don't we?
I've made these a few seasons in a row now and they're a hit every time! Impress on your friends and family by whipping these up this Christmas. They're actually easy to make yet look impressive!
How to make homemade hot chocolate
INGREDIENTS: serving 2
- 2 tsb cacao powder
- 2 tsb sugar
- Milk (dairy, plant based - whatever you prefer)
- Whipped cream
- 2 candy canes
It's actually quite simple. No, really - it is! Start by mixing cacao powder and sugar, add a small dash of milk and mix until you get a smooth paste. Add the paste to heated milk in a pan. Taste and add more milk slowly, stirr a bit, and then add more - all the way until you've found the perfect ratio for your liking. I like mine quite strong, with lots of flavour!
Pour the hot chocolate into mugs, spritz whipped cream on top, powder some cacao powder on the whipped cream (I use a tea strainer to dust over with) and finish with adding your candy cane. The candy cane will evetually melt in your hot cocolate, creating a soft, minty taste. Yum!
