This is just amazing...
Lushious Chocolate Mix.
This recipe makes a good present, mix up all the ingredients and pop into a clean jam jar with some marshmallows or even some Maltesers and a label with instructions and add a pretty ribbon.
2 tablespoons Horlicks (malted milk drink)
2 tablespoons cornflour (cornstarch)
3 tablespoons icing sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
100g dark chocolate, finely grated
1 pinch ground cinnamon
1 pinch sea salt
The mix keeps really well in an air tight tub so make up a batch and then use it as and when you need it. For an individual mug of hot chocolate with half a pint of milk use 5 heaped teaspoons of the mixture.
Pour the milk into a saucepan and bring almost to the boil then spoon the chocolate mix into the hot milk, give it a whisk and leave to simmer in the saucepan for a couple of minutes before serving – it will come together as a nice thick gloopy consistency.
Serve as is or top with whipped cream, marshmallows and a couple of Maltesers or a sprinkling of grated chocolate.
Ring the changes by using milk or white chocolate in the mixture instead of dark chocolate you could even use grated Caramac for a caramel flavour drink.
