Everyone's favourite quick winter treat gets a festive facelift
Prep:2 mins Cook:10 mins
Nutrition per serving
200g bar plain chocolate, broken into chunks
150ml pot single or double cream
sugar, to taste
6 peppermint candy canes, to serve
Put the chocolate in a pan with the milk. Gently heat, stirring until all the chocolate has melted. Continue heating until the milk is steaming, then remove from the heat and stir in the cream.
Divide the hot chocolate between 6 mugs, add sugar to taste and hang a candy cane on the edge of each. Pass the mugs round and let everyone stir their hot chocolate with their candy cane – letting as much of the sweet peppermint dissolve as they fancy.
