Hot Chocolate

Nuvita Biscuits

This is a favourite of mine. Do as the Italians do, and drink it from a bowl instead of a mug.

Serves: 3-4

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes


  • 100g plain chocolate
  • 15g unsalted butter
  • 125ml full-fat milk
  • 450ml double cream
  • 1 shot rich espresso coffee (or 25ml strong, fresh coffee)
  • 2 heaped teaspoons dark soft brown sugar
  • 40g plain chocolate, finely shaved, to serve


  1. Put the chocolate, butter, milk and two thirds of the double cream into a saucepan. Heat gently until the chocolate has melted, stirring constantly. Turn up the heat and bring to the boil, stirring all the time.
  2. Add the coffee and enough sugar to taste, and then pour into bowls.
  3. Whip the remaining cream until firm. Top the hot chocolate with the whipped cream and sprinkle over the chocolate shavings.

    In all the supermarkets, I’ve noticed that every brand sells both hot chocolate and drinking chocolate. Could someone please tell me what the difference is between the two?

    I got my friend Hot Chocolate & Mini Marshmallows in a glass jars for Christmas(of ’09) && It’s now been a little less than 5 months and I still haven’t given it to her since i didn’t really get to see her.. So, would the hot chocolate still be good or do you think it expired already? I can’t check because it’s already wrapped in Christmas paper & stuff… I am planning on giving it to her this week..

    Thanks! :)

    Instead of adding hot water or hot milk to my hot chocolate powder, can I add cold milk to it instead to get a class of cold chocolate milk? Would it taste okay or would the powder go “lumpy” if you add cold milk?
