How to make festive Hot Chocolates at home // Blogmas 2015


Hot Chocolate is the perfect drink for this time of year. For me, it's the ideal comfort drink for the colder weather, or just before bed time. I have two ways of making delicious hot chocolate, and I'm going to share both with you today!

One is the Luxury hot chocolate, and the other is the easy-peasy flavoured hot chocolate, but you can mix and match the recipes to craft your own perfect hot chocolate!

The first way to make a luxury hot chocolate is with chocolate, cocoa powder and milk. That's all. It's that easy. You will need about 20g of chocolate for each mug of milk you use. So, if it's just for yourself, warm the milk up in a pan on the stove. Add the chocolate in until it melts into the milk. Stir in a a teaspoon of cocoa powder if you like it to have a more rich, chocolatey flavour. You can add more, or less, chocolate in that I've suggested - it's totally up to you but this is a good amount to start with if you're unsure.

Now the easy peasy hot chocolate - here is how to make the perfect cup of hot chocolate using instant mix. Yep, instant hot chocolate mix. You need around 4 tea spoons of chocolate mix, depending on the size of the mug. Pop the kettle on, and while it's boiling stir in milk to the powder so your mug is a quarter full. Then add the boiling water so it fills the mug about two thirds of the way, while continuously stirring it. Then top up the rest of the mug with milk. I think this is the best way to make it from a mix!

And the best way to flavour your  hot chocolates so good they are worthy of a place on the Costa Christmas menu? Coffee syrups. Bet you weren't expecting it to be that easy, right?

I found my coffee syrups in TK Maxx but you can buy nice ones in Costa and Whittard's too. All you do is add two tea spoons of syrup to your drink and it's full of flavour (also full of sugar so don't go over the top with additional syrup!). Enjoy your very own flavoured hot drinks!

  1. I'm also a big fan of hot chocolate this time of year as I don't really drink tea or coffee. My favourite instant hot chocolate is Options - it's low calorie and absolutely delicious, especially with a dash of milk xx

  2. They all sound so nice! I have a vanilla syrup that I love in coffee, I'd never thought to put it in hot chocolate. Definitely going to try that tonight! x

  4. I work at Term Paper Writing Service - Eazyresearch.com, and just under our office building, there is a coffee shop. And during the coffee break, I always order myself a cup of hot chocolate from there. I think it’s a great drink. Now, I am glad to be here – because I can make this amazing drink at home as well. I will grab myself all the ingredients and try this recipe out as soon as I reach home.

  5. Most chocolates are eaten by children so we are not interested in this food as we are engaged in marketing and provide writing service to all university students who are worried about their final papers. Assignment writing services

  6. Hmm, I love hot chocolates and I think this recipe is perfect for someone like me – who is busy most of the time. I provide secondary data collection help and I don’t have time to try long, time-consuming recipes and this one seems perfect in this regard. I am going to try this soon.
