Rococo's Decadent Hot Chocolate Recipe
You Will Need:
A medium glass bowl
50g of Dark Chocolate - we'd recommend our Sea Salt Dark Artisan Bar, or one of our exquisite Single Origin Artisan Bars
30 ml of whipping cream (or oat cream, depending on your dietary preferences)
200ml of whole milk (or almond milk, or oat milk, depending on your dietary preferences)
1. Break apart your chosen chocolate and place it in a glass bowl.
2. Gently heat the cream and milk in a saucepan until almost boiling.
3. Gently pour your heated concoction over your broken chocolate.
4. While you pour, hold the whisk in the centre of the mixture and stir. Create a chocolaty whirlpool and watch as your decadent elixir forms before your very eyes.
5. Pour into your chosen mugs, and top with a little cream and if you're feeling brave, a pinch of chilli!
