Candy Cane Hot Chocolate
We need to have a conversation about this indulgent winter warmer.
Whatever you're doing, stop. Let's get the fire started and indulge in a big ole mug of hot chocolate. But not just any hot chocolate...
A deliciously rich, thick, creamy, sweet, candy cane hot chocolate.
Okay, let's quickly rewind.
To make two big mugs of this, you'll need:
-400ml Milk - I used Oatly oat milk for this round, but almond or hemp milk works pretty well too.
-6 candy canes - 2 for decoration, 4 for melting into the hot chocolate.
-Hot Chocolate Granules - Green and Blacks is my favourite
-A bigggg handful of chocolate drops - I went weak at the knees for JAtkinson's Pure Chocolate Drops.
Gently heat the milk over a low heat, stirring so as not to burn.
Then, add in the hot chocolate powder, the chocolate drops, and the candy cane.
Let it all melt down - keep stirring.
Then... start the fire, gather around, and...
Sip the thick rich hot chocolate, curl up inside,
Let the world fall still outside
... and simply indulge...
A beverage deliciously rich and nourishing for the soul.
