Will be trying this for myself and the kids tonight. Can’t wait! Carrielovesbbcg?!? On your recipe does it say drink three a day every day of the week? No? Mine neither. It’s a treat i.e. once in a while. Calm down now.

A little orange essence or orange oil makes it deliciouser, real orange might make it curdle.

I used what I had in the cupboard for chocolate. 50g galaxy bubbles & 50g of dark chocolate(75% cocoa solids) Absolutely yummy & so easy, I'll definitely be making this again & will maybe try some different combinations. yummy!

Delicious! One tip would be to add some sugar or sweetener as it can be quite bitter without it. I used green and black milk chocolate that only had 37% cocoa and that still needed a touch of sugar (in my opinion). Other than that a great recipe that I will use time and time again.
