There are a lot of ways to make hot chocolate using cocoa powder or drinking chocolate, but the best flavour comes from melting real milk chocolate into warm milk.
- 1 liter milk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 4 cardamom pods, cracked
- 350 g milk chocolate
- 100 g extra heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons finely grated dark chocolate, to decorate
- Place the milk in large pan with the cinnamon and cardamom and heat gently. break the chocolate into the pan and gently bring to the boil, stirring occasionally, until melted.
- Scoop out the cardamom pods and discard. pour the hot chocolate into four mugs and top wach with a spoonful of extra thick cream; sprinkle over some grated chocolate and serve.
What a great hot chocolate Lene. I loved it, the ratio of cardamom and cinnamon is perfect. This is a beautifully spiced, decadent hot chocolate. Rich, thick and creamy. I used lindor chocolates for an extra special treat, thank you so much for sharing. :)
I love this recipe! I think this has to be one of the highlights of Ainsley's Gourmet Express - thanks for posting :) I like to serve ours with cinnamon sticks for stirrers too.....
