Melting spiced hot chocolate

This is a great Christmas eve treat. Warm soothing hot chocolate with calming cinnamon which will hopefully keep everyone in bed until Father Christmas has been and gone. Don’t forget to leave a mug out for them man himself.

Makes 4 mugs

1 litre of almond, coconut or whole milk
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
100g of good dark or good milk chocolate, grated
2 tablespoons of honey, more if you like it sweet

Carefully heat the milk and allow to just come to a simmer, don’t let it boil or it will boil over onto your cooker. Stir in the chocolate, cinnamon and honey, adding a little more if you like it sweeter. Pour into 4 mugs and serve with marshmallows on top.

I don’t want to spoil the party but, marshmallows are made with pork or beef gelatine.

Thanks Marie, conventional marshmallows are often made with gelatine yes, but there are vegetarian marshmallows available. This drink is also delicious without them.

I’m making it right now, with rice syrup instead of honey and green & blacks dark chocolate…as that’s all you can get in middle of nowhere Australia
