Once the cold sets in I start craving something warm and comforting but I’m not a fan of hot tea or coffee so when it’s cold I go straight for the hot chocolate!
There’s tons of homemade hot chocolate recipes on the internet and after many winters of experimenting I’ve found our favourite recipe!
So, here it is!
4 ounces of your favourite good quality chocolate, chopped
1 cup cream
1 cup 2% milk
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
pinch of salt
whipped cream – optional but everything is better with whipped cream
Chop your chocolate into small pieces. Heat milk, cream and brown sugar together in a pan over medium-low heat. Add the salt. Once liquid starts to bubble add the chocolate and whisk until smooth. Once steaming pour into two mugs and add whipped cream if using. Enjoy!
