You know those days where it’s really cold and you’ve been so well behaved and you just desire a super indulgent, straight-to-the-hips hot chocolate?
This is the recipe you want.
It’s decadent, creamy, chocolatey and full of guilt (and calories) – use all the ingredients sparingly and embrace this most indulgent of hot chocolates. Whilst you’re at it, you may as well top it with whipping cream, sprinkles and marshmallows and write the day off.
Super decadent hot chocolate, serves 2
1 large bar Belgian milk chocolate (approx. 200g)
1 pot double cream (284ml)
Cup of whole milk
½ tsp cinnamon powder
1 capful of navy rum (optional)
1 pinch cayenne pepper (seriously)
Are you ready, this is literally the simplest but most rewarding recipe ever. The steps are quick, so have your best cups at the ready!
-In a saucepan or bain marie melt the chocolate until it’s a little soft, then pour in the cream.
-Stir continuously until the chocolate is mostly dissolved.
-Add in the rum, cinnamon and cayenne pepper
-If it needs thickening up, slowly stir in a little whole milk at a time to achieve the right consistency
-Pour out, top with cream and adorn with sprinkles.
This should be enjoyed guilt free, without regard for the gym or sugar intake. If you’re going to misbehave, might as well be worth it, eh? It’s winter after all.
(P.s. if you really want to jeopardise your BMI then enjoy with a chocolate smothered croissant like we did…)
