Technique to enjoy the best hot chocolate this Christmas

It is time to curl up on the couch with a movie, a fireplace, and a good, hot chocolate. We want to share with you some hacks for the best hot chocolate.

Infuse milk

Milk with spices in a saucepan over heat

It is optional, but it can make your hot chocolate completely different. Use vanilla, cinnamon, anise, or any other of your preferred spices. Put spices in a pot with milk and bring it to a boil. Then, set aside and cover the pot with cling film. Infuse for around 2 hours. 

Time to choose your favourite chocolate

Dark, white, milk chocolate, caramel, or a mix of all of them.

...and now time to chunk

Cut the chocolate into small pieces with a knife. A food processor will not give you the same result and, even though it will take some time, the result is worth it. 

Turn on your hob again

Bring milk to a boil again, set aside, and pour over the chocolate pieces. Stir at the same time with a spoon. We highly recommend using 1 part chocolate to 2 parts milk (1:2), but you can choose quantities if you want a thicker hot chocolate.

Do you want something even tastier?

Add another of your preferred flavour to the hot chocolate. For instance, you can also add a couple of Werther’s Originals caramels. They will melt in the hot chocolate giving a wonderful caramel touch.

Last but not least: garnish

Decorate your hot chocolate with whipping cream and, if you want a classic choice, don’t forget to add a marshmallow.
