Frozen Hot Chocolate

"Something to make any chocolate lover drool. This recipe, originally printed in London's Evening Standard, is different from others I've seen because it's just pure chocolate and cream -- no added sugar or other ingredients."

  • Make a bain marie (a bowl sitting in a pot of boiling water).
  • Break the chocolate into the bain marie and slowly melt. Add the cinnamon and seeds from the vanilla pod or the extract.
  • When the chocolate has melted, pour in the cream and mix well.
  • Allow the mixture to sit for a few minutes to take on the flavours of cinnamon and vanilla, then remove the cinnamon and pour the mixture into ramekins, espresso cups or other serving dishes.
  • Place on a tray in a freezer and freeze for at least 2 hours.

  1. This is very very rich. I found it to taste very much like fudge. It was good, however I was expecting much different based on the name. If I were to make it again I would try putting cinnamon directly into the recipe instead of using the stick. It an easy to make fudge recipe!
  2. Yum! I used Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate and it turned out great! I halved the recipe and got 3 small ramekins. Nice and smooth and rich! Thanks!


This is a picture of me and my husband in Portugal, climbing up above the clouds with our bikes. Right now we are travelling around the world on our bicycles, so I only pop onto Zaar occasionally, when internet connections and time allow me to. If I don't reply to a message about one of my recipes, now you know why! Our trip may take several years so if it's urgent, it's probably better for you to post in the forums ;) Good food is really important to me -- I am happy to pay extra for food that I feel is produced in a sustainable and ethical way and always try to eat using seasonal produce. When we were in the UK we rarely shopped at supermarkets, trying instead to favour small producers, although we were very lucky in that we lived in London and there was lots of choice. We also were fortunate enough to have a weekly organic veg box delivered to our door, filled with so many lovely vegetables for very little money. It really opened my horizons in terms of the variety of vegetables I eat. If you're in the UK, check out Riverford for a box supplier as they're amazing! When I'm not eating I love to take pictures and travel with my husband. <img src="">
