With Winter well and truly here in Melbourne there is nothing better then cuddling up on the couch with a homemade hot chocolate. There are lots of different ways to make a great hot chocolate but this is the best way I have found.
500ml Full cream milk
80gm 70% cocoa chocolate, finely grated
40gm milk chocolate, finely grated
Pinch of salt
Pinch of cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg
Warm half the milk in a saucepan on medium heat and stir in the chocolate, stir until melted.
Whisk in the remaining milk and cream and stir well while it continues to heat.
Add the salt, nutmeg and cinnamon to the saucepan and whisk well, heat without it bringing to the boil.
Before pouring whisk quickly so that the milk froths up a little.
Pour into 2 mugs and enjoy!
