Ultimate Hot Chocolate

October 30, 2012

On chilly Autumn days like today, there’s nothing we like more than a spot of delicious, creamy and warming hot chocolate. But we don’t settle for any old powdered mix, oh no.

This recipe is fantastic, it takes a little time but I promise you it’s worth the wait! Why not make up a batch for a party? It’s ideal for cold fingered trick or treaters or as a tasty treat whilst watching the fireworks.

You will need –

–1.5 cups of heavy cream
–1 can of sweetened condensed milk (14 oz)
–2 cups of dark chocolate chips
–6 cups of milk
–1 tsp vanilla extract

In a large pot over low heat, combine all of the above ingredients. Stir regularly for 30-40 minutes until chocolate is fully melted and incorporated with other ingredients.

If you’re making this for a party, you could add all of the above ingredients to a slow cooker a few hours before guests arrive. Provide a ladle and mugs and let them serve themselves.

Remember to have marshmallows and cocoa powder ready for the finishing touches.
