PREPARATION

COOKING

5 mins

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tbsp (or to taste) Tate & Lyle Brown Sugar with Stevia 
  • 125g dark cooks' chocolate, 72% cocoa solids
  • 200ml cold water
  • 500ml skimmed milk

HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE

  1. Break the chocolate into pieces, pop in a processor and, using the pulse button, whizz until the chocolate is finely chopped. Tip the chocolate into a pan along with water, milk and Tate & Lyle Brown Sugar with Stevia and slowly bring to the boil. Whisk the mixture constantly to prevent the chocolate from burning.
  2. When the hot chocolate mix is simmering remove the pan from the heat. Then, using a hand held blender, carefully blitz until frothy. Pour into glass mugs to serve.

GET THE KIDS INVOLVED:

Once the hot chocolate has been carefully poured into cups, let the children have fun by squirting light real cream from an aerosol on top!

CHEF'S TIP

If you don’t have a hand held (stick) blender just whisk well with a traditional balloon whisk instead. For ultimate presentation, add a sprinkling of chocolate curls on top just before serving.
