The Best Hot Chocolate

The countdown is getting all to exciting now, 4 days till Christmas! Most people have finished work, kids have finished school and everyone is getting into the festive mood. One of my most favourite things to do this time of year is snuggle up on the sofa with a hot chocolate and watch a film. Normally a festive film, but sometimes it might just be Geordie shore.

This is my all out hot chocolate. I won’t have this every time because well, calories. Measure out your milk in the mug you are going to use and then put it in a saucepan on a medium heat Add in some dairy milk or which ever you prefer, I used half of a large bar. Leave to bubble away for a few minutes before serving.

After this has melted into the milk, add in some hazelnut syrup and pour into your mug. Pop in a candy cane, add some whipped cream and then chocolate sauce on top. Perfection in a mug. Really simple and so tasty.

My other favourite hot chocolates this season is Costa’s black forest hot chocolate and Starbucks honey and almond hot chocolate. They are perfection, but too expensive to have all the time.

What is your favourite festive drink?
