Epic Hot Chocolate

I am packing a large basket of goodies to take with me to-day, as I am visiting my sister for the pre-Christmas chit chat. among the items will be a jar of Epic Hot Chocolate drink. I came across this recipe from Jamie Oliver. He was dipping waffles into his drink and it looked amazing. It is so easy to do and store in a jar until needed. Just make sure you have plenty of milk and once started you will find it difficult to stop, your guests will want more.

Epic Hot Chocolate
2 tabsp. Horlicks (malted drink)
2 tabsp. cornflour
3 tabsp. icing sugar
4 tabsp. cocoa
100g dark chocolate - grated
good pinch of cinnamon

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl and then put into suitable storage jar with air-tight lid.

To Use
Heat approx 2 pints of milk in a saucepan
Add approx 6 heaped tablesp. chco mixture and stir until just simmering
The mixture wil thicken slightly.
Pour into mugs and serve.
You can top with extra whipped cream and marshmallows, but it is very rich.

I, of course double the recipe and make sure I have plenty of mixture - it really is that good.

That sounds wonderful! We can get Horlicks here, so I'll have to try it.
