Something truly indulgent: Luxury hot chocolate

Something for the weekend perhaps? This recipe just popped up on my Facebook new feed from BBC Good Food. It makes a truly deluxe hot chocolate. Perfect for a one-off treat.

Photo from BBC Food, my photo didn't show it off well!
You will need:
  • 600ml of milk (your choice what kind)
  • 142ml pot double cream
  • 100g chopped chocolate - milk chocolate works best
  • Mini marshmallows and grated chocolate to top
To make:

Put the milk, cream and chocolate into a saucepan.

Bring to the boil gently, whisking until it is smooth.

Serve in mugs or cups topped with marshmallows and grated chocolate.

This should make 4 mugs worth (dependent on the size of your mugs!)

Good Food recommends making it a little more "grown-up" by adding 2 or 3 tablespoons of brandy to the mixture on the hob.
