Recipes

You can use our hot chocolate flakes to make a delicious hot chocolate in either a hot chocolate machine/ milk frother, on the stove or in the microwave.  The quantities below are to make one mug of hot chocolate.  Some hot chocolate machine instructions suggest a different ratio of chocolate to milk, however, we feel that the amount of our flakes to milk in the following recipes produces the best flavour for our taste.  Feel free to adjust to your taste.  You can use any milk you prefer, cows milk, almond milk etc.  We especially love hazelnut milk for hot chocolate.  Enjoy!!

One for the adults

Our hot chocolate is also amazing with a shot of liqueur of your choice.  Just make your hot chocolate as above and then pop in a good dash of  brandy, whisky or liqueur.  Our favourite is Amaretto, especially when sitting by a roaring firepit in the evening.
