Hot chocolate and Winter go together perfectly. I have a tendency to drink hot chocolate from September straight through to February. Cups of tea kind of get pushed to the side for a little white as it’s all about the gooey marshmallow topping. So with that in mind, I thought I would show you how I make my ideal hot chocolate and the ingredients you will need.
*Disclaimer: I am not sponsored by Cadbury or KitKat.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
Hot Chocolate Powder – I always use Cadbury’s as it tastes the best
Marshmallows – Choose your own size: big, medium or small
Your chocolate topping – I tend to go for KitKat or Flake
STEP ONE: The Powder & The Milk
Add four spoonfuls of the cocoa powder to your chosen mug.
Add a dash of milk [despite this powder being an ‘add hot water’ one].
STEP TWO: The Mixing
With a hand electric mixer [£1 from ASDA] or a spoon, mix the powder and milk by adding small amounts of the hot water. To ensure that the drink doesn’t go everywhere, don’t mix on full power – hold the mixture to the bottom of the cup and stir until there are no floating bits of cocoa power.
STEP THREE: The Marshmallows
I used three relatively big marshmallows but for maximum effect, I cut them up with scissors for more of that wonderful gooey sensation.
STEP FOUR: The Chocolate Topping
With one of the KitKat sticks, I grated the chocolate over the marshmallows and within a couple of grates, the topping was complete. This was the first time that I’d used KitKat and it tasted delicious! There’s no certain amount of how much you can’t use – go wild if you want!
STEP FIVE: Enjoy The Finished Treat
