Tearoom Treats: Hot Chocolate
This week for Tearoom Treats, Glasgow Museums have a very indulgent and luxurious hot chocolate recipe for you!
Perfect to warm you up after winter walks or as an indulgent festive treat!
You will need:
- 125g 70% dark chocolate
- 500ml semi skimmed milk, or milk substitute
- 3 tbsp cocoa
- 2.5 tbsp caster sugar
- Whipped cream and marshmallows to decorate
Grate or finely chop the chocolate and set aside. Put the milk, cocoa and sugar into a saucepan and gently bring to a simmer on a medium heat.
If you like you can experiment with some flavours, try adding a pinch of mixed spice or cinnamon, or perhaps some grated orange rind to the milk. Take the milk mixture off the heat, add in the chocolate and whisk for 2 minutes.
Split the mixture between 4 mugs – or 2 large mugs – add the marshmallows and whipped cream and enjoy!
