Rêveuse Recipe: A Quick and Easy Hot Chocolate 3 Ways

Rêveuse Recipe: A Quick and Easy Hot Chocolate 3 Ways

With Christmas coming up in just 7 weeks, (can you believe it!?) what's more festive than a delicious mug of cocoa! Our go-to is the basic Cadburys hot chocolate, but this time round we wanted to make it a bit more luxurious and festive and played with adding different flavours to the mix. Peppermint, orange and cinnamon were the final flavours we chose (after much debate!) and we couldn't feel excited for the holidays. The flavours are super delicious and add a sparkle to a basic hot chocolate. Let us know if you try any of our recipes, or what flavours you enjoy with your hot chocolate!

2 large tbsp Green and Blacks cocoa powder
1 tbsp brown sugar
3 mugfuls of whole milk

150 ml double cream
1tbsp sugar

2 tsp peppermint extract
2 tsp orange extract
1 tbsp of Cinnamon Powder

SERVES: 3 mugs
DURATION: Approx 10 minutes

To make the base hot chocolate, heat the milk on the stove. We measured the milk into the intended mug for ease to know how much milk to add. Stir every once in a while and when it starts to boil add in the sugar and whisk in the cocoa powder until mixed with no lumps. Take off the heat and pour into a sieve and into the mugs to remove the milky film that forms on top of hot milk. 

To make your own whipped cream, whip together the sugar and double cream until a thick but light consistency forms. Make sure not to over whip the cream. We added this on top of our drinks, which slowly started to sink so we had some spray cream on hand which we used just to make it look all pretty and stay afloat!

We added a tsp or two of the extract into each mug. Note that the extract will separate in the mugs. For the cinnamon flavour you can heat it on the stove with the hot chocolate base before sieving altogether to remove large chunks of cinnamon stick if you are grinding it yourself.
