Hot Chocolate


Sometimes you just need the real deal. I love my coffee and not a fan of hot chocolate but when I was pregnant it was the only thing I could drink. I had never made proper hot chocolate and on this day I was thinking of Max Brenner. Men…those guys and their chocolate, to die for, it is one of the places I miss about Melbourne. I checked a few recipes on how to make hot chocolate and most had milk chocolate. I usually use a lot of dark chocolate for cakes and decided to use for this instead. Added a pinch of chili just to give it a bit of a kick.

Serves: 2 small cups or 1 large mug Cook Time: 5 minutes



50g dark chocolate or milk chocolate extra for garnish

200g milk or more

1 Cinnamon stick

Pinch of chili or more (optional)

2 Marshmallows (optional)


  1. In a sauce pan over medium heat put in the dark chocolate and milk and whisk constantly until chocolate has melted for about 4-5 minutes. Add the cinnamon and chili stir to combine and remove from heat and serve in a cup. Top it with marshmallows and chocolate shavings.
