Decadent Hot Chocolate

1

My daughter loves hot chocolate. She usually has it for breakfast, especially on the cold mornings we've been having. Our hot chocolate has to be made with milk – I've never been a fan of water based hot chocolate.

Our stand-by easy version is to heat up our milk and add a heaping tea-spoon of Suchard Express (imported from Switzerland, but not at that price!) and mix for a nice frothy hot chocolate.

If you don't have Suchard Express, try the following recipe for one cup:

  • 1 cup of hot frothy milk
  • 1 teaspoon of bakers cocoa (the best quality you can afford)
  • 1-2 teaspoons of sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)
  • 1 dash of vanilla extract
  • sprinkle with salt

Sometimes we'll add mini marshmallows as an afternoon treat, but usually a hot-chocolate is just a simple beverage that warms the soul on a cold winters day.

    Interesting how a little bit of salt can help to bring out the sweet!
