There is something about Autumn and Winter that's magical. You wrap up warm, go for walks ending in a red nose and rosy cheeks. There's all those cold nights out for Halloween, Bonfire Night and Christmas Eve. What could be better than coming indoors to a rich, sweet, cockle-warming hot chocolate? Nothing! Go fetch that Crock Pot from the loft and make our Slow Cooker* Hot Chocolate.
- 170g of Cocoa
- 1 tin of Condensed Milk
- 1/4 teaspoon of Salt
- 200ml water
- Squirty Cream (optional)
- Marshmallows (optional)
- This recipe couldn't be more simple.
- Put all the ingredients into the Slow Cooker.
- Stir thoroughly.
- Turn on high.
- This winter drink is ready when hot.
- Decant into cups and top with Squirty Cream and Marshmallows.
If you would like a Turkish Delight one add two tablespoons of Rose Water. For peppermint or orange add mint/orange essence to suit taste. My favourite is the Malteser one - add three heaps of Horlicks into it.
